Fastnet Rovers 2, Cushinstown A.F.C. 0: Fastnet eventually booked their place in the last 16 of the cup when they overcame Cushinstown 2-0, but found the visitors' 'keeper in fine form as she pulled off several vital saves.

Camolin Celtic 1, Ferns United 7: This game was much closer than the scoreline suggests as Camolin were very competitive for long periods but eventually could not handle the firepower of the Premier side.

Ferns led 1-0 at the break but were much more clinical in the second-half despite the home side's best efforts to stem their attack.

Caroline Murphy did score a consolation goal from the home side but two goals each from Liz Evered, Leona Breen and Aoife Devereux plus an own goal gave Ferns an important three points.

Marian gave Hibs the lead on the 20-minute mark but Corach bounced back to go in 2-1 ahead at half-time thanks to goals from Sal Eustace and Niamh Miller.

Leonie Gleeson levelled for the home side just 15 minutes into the second-half and the game looked to be heading for a draw until Marian scored her second two minutes into injury time.
