Substitute Johnny Breen finished this Ford FAI Cup tie with an eight-minute hat-trick to see Drogheda through to the last 16 against 10-man Mayfield.

Goals in the tenth and 12th minute from Peter Hynes – an overhead kick – and Declan O’Brien put the Drogs in command and Gavin Brennan made it 3-0 on the stroke of half-time.

Mayfield had Stephen Hurley sent off but then pulled a goal back through Greg Kelly before Breen took full advantage of the visitors being a man down.
