On the other side of the draw IT Carlow won their Semi Final at home to DIT where Andy Mulligan scored each side of half time before DIT pulled one back with minutes to go to make it a nervy finish. However IT Carlow held on to knock the reigning champions out of the competition. They will now play DCU who had a hard earned win over UCC at St. Clares the score line here was also 2-1. In the First Division Colaiste Stiofain Naofa made the long journey to Dublin to face Colaiste Ide in their Quarter Final.

In the other game in the division IT Sligo played IT Blanchardstown at home and progressed to the Semi Final with a 5-2 win.

LIT Tipperary also played on Tuesday against IT Blanchardstown B and the game finished 0-0 after 90 minutes. Neither team could get a goal in extra time so penalties decided the outcome.
