I spoke with Gary O'Neill for this evening's match day programme and he was a happy man after that win in Dalymount Park in the cup.

“The win was probably the best night I’ve had in football in my career so far in terms of the magnitude of the game, with it being live on television and the opposition."

In the programme Stephen Bradley is talking about the FAI Cup win over Bohs:

To win a semi-final and progress through to playing in the Aviva Stadium for the final is massive, but to win away to our rivals, Bohemians, made it even better."
