Galway United 1-0 Bohemians (after extra-time)

Keith Long’s decision to use all three of his substitutes in normal time backfired on the Bohs boss as Anto Murphy hobbled off and left his depleted side chasing an equaliser which was to prove beyond them.
The Tribesmen had accounted for the Gypsies in very different fashion on Friday night, prevailing 5-3 in a thrilling encounter in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division.
Galway were joined in the last four by Cup holders Dundalk, who recorded a resounding 5-0 win over a hopelessly outclassed UCC side, while Cork City, St Patrick’s Athletic, Derry City and Shamrock Rovers contest the remaining quarter-finals in the competition on Tuesday night.
