HOLDERS WEXFORD YOUTHS face Athlone Town, as Shelbourne and Bohemians go head-to-head in a Dublin derby in the 2022 FAI Women’s Cup semi-finals.

Wexford travel to Athlone, while Shels will host Bohs on the weekend of 24/25 September. The final is scheduled for Sunday, 6 November, recent editions moving to Tallaght Stadium from the Aviva.

Noel King’s Reds came out on top of another entertaining Dublin derby last weekend, prevailing after a 3-2 come-from-behind win over Peamount United at Tolka Park. Elsewhere, high-flying Athlone edged out Cork City, Bohs beat Sligo Rovers, and Wexford saw off DLR Waves. 

The last-four draw was made at FAI HQ this afternoon, and streamed live. Former Raheny United and Shelbourne defender Seana Cooke and ex-League of Ireland star Conan Byrne conducted the draw alongside Con Murphy.  

In other domestic women’s football news, Shels are inviting teams from across Dublin to attend their Women’s National League game for free this Saturday.

The reigning champions face Treaty United at Tolka Park [KO 2pm] in their final match before departing for their Uefa Champions League qualifiers next week.
