Ronan Finn and Ciaran Kilduff provided the goals late in each half to book holders Shamrock Rovers a semi-final date with Bohemians as both teams finished with 10 men.

Having beaten Rovers well twice this season, and bringing a 10-match unbeaten run into the game, Cork didn't lack confidence and they might have been in front within five minutes.

Josh O'Shea and Garry Buckley combined to set up John Kavanagh whose shot deflected off Conor Kenna and came back off a post.

Rovers settled into the game and Eamon Zayed missed a good chance before the game boiled over just after the half-hour with six cards issued, two of them red.

It started with Robert Bayly being booked for a foul on John Kavanagh, who was also mysteriously yellow-carded. Gary McCabe was booked for dissent following that incident.

The red mist descended a minute later when Garry Buckley and Finn squared up to each other.

In the scuffle that followed Cork's Dave O'Leary went to ground before Buckley was shown a straight red card by referee Paul Tuite as Finn escaped any censure.

McCabe was then shown the yellow card for the second time for dissent and was dismissed.

Finn gave Rovers the lead three minutes before the break. The Rovers' midfielder rattled a volley from Simon Madden's low cross off the crossbar and was there to fire home the rebound.

Craig Hyland made a brilliant stop on 88 minutes to deny Danny Morrisey' an equaliser before Kilduff added Rovers' second three minutes into added time.

Shamrock Rovers – Hyland; Madden, Kenna, D. O'Connor, Byrne; Sheppard (Waters, 68), Bayly, Finn, S. O'Connor; McCabe; Zayed (Kilduff, 90).

Cork City – McNulty; McSweeney (O'Sullivan, h/t), Donleavy (D. Morrissey, 72), Murray, Davoren; Buckley, O'Leary; Kavanagh, Lehane (Kearney, 15), O'Shea; O'Flynn.
