St Patrick’s Athletic have advanced to the quarter-finals of the FAI Ford Cup after recording a rather fortuitous 1-0 win against Shelbourne at Tolka Park.

Shelbourne keeper Greg Murray could only parry Killian Brennan’s 44th-minute free-kick and Conan Byrne reacted quickest to tap home from close range.

St Pat's will face Bohemians in the last eight at Richmond Park.
