Goals from Terence Doherty, James McKinney and Connor Barrow gave Shane Byrne’s team victory in Carlow this afternoon.
Now, the Crua men are just two steps from the Aviva Stadium, where the final of the competition is played.
Two years ago, Glengad reached the quarter-finals, when they lost out to Pike Rovers.
The Inishowen League champions started well and ace marksman Doherty fired Glengad in front on 21 minutes.
Crettyard pulled level, but Glengad regained the lead as McKinney stepped up to fire home from a penalty.
Glengad took a massive leap towards the last eight when Barrow struck gold in the second half.
Glengad overcame Birr Town last month, having previously beaten Geraldines, Illies Celtic , Castlefin Celtic and Redcastle United.Tags:
