FAI Cup Semi-Final Preview – The Manager’s Thoughts

Galway United return to the Semi-Final of the Sports Direct FAI Cup for the first time since 2008 when they face Bohemians at Eamon Deacy Park on Saturday Afternoon.

For United, it has already been an incredible season.

However, Bohemians will be coming to town in fine form and are currently fourth in the Premier Division and in the cup, beat Drogheda United 3-1 in the Quarter Final.
