Alan Wallace converted his own try to put Thomond 15-6 head but a late surge from Bohs saw them book a their semi final place. An Evan Cusack penalty and a Darragh O’Neill try made up the rest of Thomond’s total.

In last night’s other 1/4 final, Nenagh Ormond edged past Shannon by 14-7. Shannon threw everything at the Tipperary outfit late in the game but Nenagh held out courtesy of tries from Gerard O’Gorman and Johnny Hayes.
