Tennent’s Irish Cup semi-final venues confirmed

 The Irish FA’s Challenge Cup committee has confirmed that this season’s Tennent’s Irish Cup semi-finals will be played at Mourneview Park and The Oval.

The Lurgan venue will host Warrenpoint Town v Ballinamallard, while Crusaders will take on Coleraine in East Belfast. 

Coleraine are looking to retain their title having come from behind to beat Larne in Friday night's quarter-final. They take on a Crusaders side who ran out comfortable 3-0 winners over Ballymena. 

The other half of the draw sees two clubs that are looking to win the competition for the first time. Warrenpoint beat Larne Tech Old Boys 3-1 in the quarter-final, while Ballinamallard United needed penalties to edge past Dungannon Swifts at Stangmore Park.

Both fixtures are scheduled for 3pm on Saturday 30 March, but the arrangements could be subject to change if a semi-final is selected for live broadcast coverage. 

The Tennent’s Irish Cup Final will be played at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park on Saturday 4 May.
