  2. On the draw

    Dungannon to play Linfield

    Quote Message: On paper we probably have the hardest draw but that is irrelevant at this stage - we are just happy to be in the semi-finals. We might upset the apple cart and come away with a victory. It should be a great occasion at Mourneview Park. from Rodney McAree Dungannon Swifts manager

  3. What they said

    Ballymena 0-4 Coleraine

    Quote Message: That's the kind of performance that puts a smile on my face. We knew what we had to do today and to come away with a result like that is great. There was a game of football to be won to get into the semi-final and the big objective for me wasn't to win the derby, it was to get into the semi-final and we did that. from Oran Kearney Coleraine boss

  4. Irish Cup semi-final draw

    Linfield v Dungannon Swifts

    Glenavon v Coleraine

    Matches to be played on Saturday, 1 April

  5. What they said

    Crusaders 0-2 Linfield

    Quote Message: I can't have any complaints. The disappointment for us was that we made two terrible mistakes in the game. It wasn't a great game of football to watch and there's always going to be a winner and a loser - unfortunately, we were the losers today. Linfield stood very tall when we put them under pressure and we didn't knock the door enough, which is disappointing from our point of view. from Stephen Baxter Crusaders boss

    Dungannon Swifts 2-1 Warrenpoint Town

    Dungannon win after extra-time and go into the draw with Coleraine, Glenavon and Linfield.

  7. What they said

    Crusaders 0-2 Linfield

    Quote Message: I thought we were good today. Crusaders are a good side but I thought we were always on top, so it was pleasing from the first minute. We had plenty of that energy and desire you need to win big cup games so I think we deserved it. I think we got stronger in the second-half and we showed our fitness levels once we got on top. from David Healy Linfield manager

    Dungannon Swifts 2-1 Warrenpoint Town

  9. What they said

    Crusaders 0-2 Linfield

    Quote Message: We're buzzing to get through to the next round. Crusaders are a good team so we're pleased to come away with what we came here to get. The work-rate from start to finish was brilliant and we got two deserving goals from it. There was a lot riding on the game today because of the seven-point difference at the top of the league table so we're pleased to get the win and hopefully can make it through to the final. from Niall Quinn Linfield midfielder

  12. GOAL

    Dungannon Swifts 2-1 Warrenpoint Town

    Dougie Wilson scores with a long-range screamer for Dungannon just three minutes into extra-time. A great strike from distance - but keeper Jonathan Parr will definitely feel he should have saved it.


    Ballymena 0-4 Coleraine

    Coleraine come out on top with the perfect revenge result after the League Cup semi-final defeat earlier in the season. McGonigle and Bradley both struck twice to give Oran Kearney's a fantastic win in the derby to make it nine wins in their last ten games in all competitions. 


    Dungannon Swifts 1-1 Warrenpoint Town

    We're going to have extra-time at Stangmore Park.


    Crusaders 0-2 Linfield

    It's all over and Linfield are safely through to the semi-final after an impressive 2-0 win over rivals Crusaders. The goals came from Stephen Lowry from the spot and Niall Quinn. 

  16. GOAL

    Crusaders 0-2 Linfield

    The Blues book their place in the semi-final and it's Niall Quinn heading in from close range after some marvellous individual play from Jamie Mulgrew, who skips past a couple of defenders before picking out his team-mate to surely put the tie beyond Crusaders!


    Portadown 0-5 Glenavon

    The holders Glenavon cruise into the semi-finals. Portadown made a bright start but Gary Hamilton's men took over to dominate.

  18. No penalty!

    Crusaders 0-1 Linfield

    Appeals from the Crusaders players after David Cushley goes down in the box but the referee waves play on. Home side really applying pressure now on the Linfield defence, but the Blues back-four are standing up to it well. 

  19. Lowry fires Blues ahead

    Crusaders 0-1 Linfield

    Here's how Linfield got their noses in front. There certainly can't be any questions over the penalty decision.
