Tipperary side St. Michael's host Tolka Rovers in repeat of historic 1974 cup final

St. Michael's continue their quest for a third FAI Junior Cup at home to Tolka Rovers on Sunday.




Memories of the most famous day in St Michael's history will be recalled on Sunday when the Saints host Tolka Rovers in the last sixteen of the FAI Junior Cup.

Because it was the famed Dublin club that the Tipp town side beat in the 1974 final to become the first club from the Premier County to lift the coveted trophy.

The win has gone down in Cooke Park folklore.

Saints have since added a second FAI Cup win but if they hope to make it three they will need to be at their best to get over Tolka Rovers who knocked out Clonmel Town in the last round.

However home advantage will be a boost to the Saints, in addition to their current form – they put eight past rivals Clonmel Celtic in the league last weekend.

On the domestice scene on Sunday, it's Tipperary Cup action with six matches down for decision, including Clonmel Town hosting Tipperary Town B.
