thumbnail Hello,

Leinster Senior League side Cherry Orchard progressed to the FAI Cup third round with a 2-0 win over First Division leaders Longford Town

Cherry Orchard 2-0 Longford United
Dublin side Cherry Orchard pulled off one of the biggest surprises of the FAI Cup third round with a 2-0 win over in-form Longford United at Frank Cooke Park.

Philip Shepherd put the Leinster Senior League team ahead after 26 minutes, before midfielder Alan Caul doubled Cherry Orchard's lead in the second half.
Crumlin United 0-3 St. Patrick's Athletic
Leinster Senior League title holders Crumlin United were no match for St. Patrick's Athletic, going down 3-0 at Richmond Park.

Martin Loughran's team allowed the match to go ahead at Pats' ground, and are probably regretting the decision after a convincing display from a mostly full-strength Pats side. A Derek Griffin own goal opened the scoring after three minutes, and Pats were 2-0 up after 13 through Jake Carroll. The result was already determined when Jake Kelly added a third late on.
Douglas Hall 1-1 Wexford Youths
Cork side Douglas Hall will have to travel to Ferrycarrig Park in midweek after forcing a replay with First Division team Wexford Youths.

Kevin Kelleher gave the hosts the lead just after half-time, but Wexford battled back into the match, and got themselves a draw when Dean Broaders finished from the spot with nine minutes remaining. Douglas were more than a match for Wexford for most of the game, and deserved the draw.
Everton AFC 0-1 Waterford United
Waterford United overcame Togher, Co. Cork side Everton AFC by a single goal in today's Munster derby.

The visitors had two penalties in the first half, with Sean Maguire causing trouble in the box to win the first. Gary Dempsey saw his effort saved by Shane Sherlock, but David Breen made no mistake just before half-time when he got the chance to convert from the spot.
Kildrum Tigers 1-3 Avondale United
Sunday's only all non-league encounter saw FAI Intermediate Cup winners Avondale United triumph against Ulster Senior League side Kildrum Tigers.

Avondale had plenty to celebrate following their Munster Senior League title win, and progressed to the FAI Cup third round thanks to two goals from Mark O'Sullivan at Station Road Park. Conor Meade also scored for the visitors, while Cormac Carlin got a late consolation goal for Kildrum.
