Rovers Return

Sligo Rovers march on to the semi-finals of the FAI Cup following a pulsating quarter-final replay with valiant non-leaguers Killester United, who equalised three times before going down 4-3 after extra time. It could well be Sligo's year once again, twelve years on from their last success; it has to be admitted that their path this year has been fairly easy - two non-league teams and Bray Wanderers - but nobody asks questions once you get to the final.
