The FAI Centenary Intermediate Cup quarter-finals look likely to be Dublin dominated. 

The last 16 draw has served up a number of mouthwatering clashes and a scenario that could lead to FAI Intermediate cup Capital control.

In fact, it’s quite possible the last eight of the prestigious national cup competition could be made up of seven Dublin sides and just one from Cork.

It’s effectively first versus fourth division, but in Jordan Buckley Usher have one of the best amateur attackers in the country and they have proven themselves upset capable by beating top flight opposition in the Metro Cup.

An all Clondalkin clash makes up the Dublin derbies as LSL Senior 1A side St Francis host LSL Senior 1’s Collinstown with a lot more than local pride on the line.

Malahide United versus Carrigaline United AFC appears to be the tie of the round. 

It’s high-flying Senior Sunday side versus high-flying Muster Senior Premier outfit for a place in the next round at Gannon Park.

Liffey Wanderers versus Cockhill Celtic pushes the Dublin versus Cork close for pick of the bunch. The surprise 2017 champions and cup specialists welcome the best Donegal has to offer to Ringsend in the New Year.
