St Patrick’s Athletic saw off neighbours Crumlin United in the second round of the FAI Ford Cup today at Richmond Park, while Longford Town were dumped out by non-league Cherry Orchard.
The Saints took the through Derek Griffin’s third minute own goal and strikes from Jake Carroll on 12 and 87 minutes secured an easy win at Richmond Park.
The Orchard shocked First Division high-flyers Longford as goals from Philip Sheppard and Alan Caul gave the Dublin side a famous victory against two-time winners in Frank Cooke Park.
There could have been more non-league winners in Cork but Douglas Hall were denied victory over Wexford Youths thanks to Dean Broaders’ 81st-minute penalty.
Kevin Kelleher had given Douglas Hall the lead with a replay set to take place in Ferrycarrig Park on Tuesday.
Waterford United saw off another Cork side, Everton, as David Breen’s penalty was enough to progress to the third round.
Gary Dempsey had earlier missed a spot-kick but Breen converted five minutes before the break and it was enough for the first division team to go through.
Avondale United disposed of Donegal side Kildrum Tigers in the day’s other game, winning 3-1 thanks to a brace from Mark O’Sullivan.
