Dundalk stun Shamrock

Dundalk FC have reached the final of the FAI Cup for the first time since 1993.

Dundalk FC reached the final of the FAI Cup for the first time since 1993 with a 4-0 win against Shamrock Rovers FC.

Haylock double
Dundalk were 2-0 up by half-time, thanks to a double strike from Garry Haylock, and further goals from Martin Reilly and James Keddy secured the win.

Chairman resigns
Shamrock Rovers chairman Joe Colwell resigned minutes after his club's shock defeat, claiming that this latest disappointment left him "depressed".

Murray comments
Meanwhile, victorious Dundalk manager Martin Murray took time out from the celebrations to pay tribute to hospital-bound midfielder Jonathan Prizeman.

Likely to miss the final
Dubliner Prizeman was a key figure for Dundalk in their Cup run but he missed out on Friday's semi-final as he was rushed to hospital on Thursday with what turned out to be appendicitis. He will now miss the final against either Bohemian FC or Derry City FC on 7 April.

Europe hopes
"It's disappointing for Jon," Murray said. "I doubt if he will be back in time for the Cup final, some people are quicker healers than others, so we will have to wait and see if he could make the final, but let's hope we’re in Europe next season so he will have something to look forward to."
