FAI Youth Cup, last 16
Cahir Park 2 Dundalk 1
With a thrilling victory over a much-fancied Dundalk FC youths side on Saturday last, Cahir Park youths march proudly into the last eight in Ireland in the FAI Youth Cup competition.
A place in the last eight in the country for the Park and thoroughly deserved.
