David Parkhouse struck twice as the home side ran out 2-1 winners.

Waterford, meanwhile, were 1-0 winners over First Division side Bray Wanderers, courtesy of Scott Twine’s 15th-minute goal.

In the competition’s other semi-final tie, Bohemians make the trip to Oriel Park to take on Dundalk.

The Lilywhites, last year’s beaten semi-finalists after they slumped to a 1-0 defeat to Cobh Ramblers, have beaten Keith Long’s side in every meeting so far this season.

Vinny Perth’s side were 3-1 winners over UCD at Oriel Park on Monday evening to book their place among the final four, while Bohemians advanced at the expense of Cork City with thanks to goals from Daniel Mandroiu and Ross Tierney.

Both fixtures will take place on Monday 5 August.
