Cork City became the first team to book their place in the semi-finals of the EA Sports Cup thanks to a deserved 2-1 win over premier division St Patrick's Athletic in front of a small, but pleased, crowd at Turner's Cross on Monday afternoon.
In a game between the big two form teams in the country, something had to give and as it turned out it was the home side that progressed thanks to a convincing attacking display.
