The IFA have announced that this season's Irish Cup semi-finals will be held at Mourneview Park and The Oval.

Glenavon's Mourneview Park home will play host to Warrenpoint Town v Ballinamallard, while the east Belfast venue will host Crusaders v Coleraine.

Both games will take place on Saturday March 30, kicking off at 3pm. Arrangements are subject to change incase a game is selected for television coverage.

Coleraine are looking to retain their title having come from behind to beat Larne in the quarter-final.

They take on a Crusaders side who ran out comfortable 3-0 winners over Ballymena.

The other half of the draw sees two clubs that are looking to win the competition for the first time.

Warrenpoint beat Larne Tech Old Boys 3-1 in the quarter-final, while Ballinamallard United needed penalties to edge past Dungannon Swifts at Stangmore Park.

The Irish Cup Final will take place at Windsor Park on Saturday May 4.
