Clontarf 4 (Richard Forrest 2, Gareth Borland, Ciaran McNamara) Railway Union 2 (Kevin O'Brien, Mark English) Fresh from ending Three Rock's long unbeaten run, Railway fell to defeat to an impressive Clontarf side who have now set up a tie with either Pembroke or Skerries. Kevin O'Brien opened the scoring early on but Ciaran McNamara had the game level by half-time.
And the division two side showed why they are looking prime contenders for promotion after the break as Gareth Borland and Richie Forrest made it 3-1 before Mark English pulled one back for the visitors to the bullring.
But Forrest grabbed his second to complete the win to make it back-to-back wins over division one sides in the competition.
Corinthian 7 (Chris Pelow 2, Darren Kimfley, Rowland Rixon-Fuller, John McInroy, Carl Eggert, Glen Holmes) Dublin Uni 1 (Ben Hewitt)
Dublin University started brightly against Corinthian, taking the lead through Ben Hewitt - the former Leinster U-21 from Bangor finding his scoring form with four in three games this week. But the reds, spurred on by their new South African pair Andrew Cronje and Darren Kimfley soon got on top of the game, especially when Trinity's Daire Coady picked up a knock.
They took a 2-1 lead into the break and surged clear in the second half, Kimfley picking up his second of the weekend. The man from Eastern Province made his debut for South Africa in 2007 and joins the club while currently on summer vacation. Cronje, meanwhile, could well be here for a longer period and is a veteran of the 2006 World Cup in Monchengladbach and the 2008 Olympics.Glenanne 4 (Gary Shaw 2, Eddie O'Malley, own goal) Suttonians 1 (Mukhtar Ahmed)
There was no fairytale return to Glenanne Park for Nasir Munir as the hosts eased into the last eight where they will face Corinthian. They went 4-0 up before Suttonians got a late consolation on the final whsitle. Munir - the former quadruple winning coach with the Glens - played for a short while against his old charges who again rested Stephen Butler and Graham Shaw with Richie Shaw and Alan Browne also sitting this one out.
