Bohemians will face Shamrock Rovers in the FAI Cup semi-finals should they beat Crumlin United on Monday.
Keith Long’s side are going in search of a first FAI Cup win in 11 years and face Crumlin at Richmond Park on Monday in their quarter-final tie which was re-arranged due to their Tunnocks Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup commitments which saw them lose out to Airdrie.
Should they see off Crumlin they will welcome Stephen Bradley’s side to Dalymount Park for their last four clash. If non-league Crumlin were to spring a surprise and beat Bohs a venue would then be decided in which to take on Rovers with Richmond Park potentially playing host again.
Rovers, who are looking to end a 32-year Cup drought, booked their place in the last four with a late winner against Galway United last week while the other semi-final sees Sligo Rovers welcome Dundalk to the Showgrounds.
The Lilywhites – who are within one win of defending their league title – beat Waterford in the quarter-finals on Monday evening while Sligo saw off UCD.
Both semis will be played on the weekend ending September 29th.
