Sligo Rovers have been in excellent goalscoring form in the FAI Cup this season. They saw off the challenge of Glebe North on a 8-0 scoreline.

They then faced Limerick in a bizarre encounter that saw the Bit O'Red fall two goals behind before winning 6-2 in a match that also saw four red cards.

A place in the last four was confirmed when Sligo Rovers saw off the challenge of UCD last weekend in The Showgrounds.
