Finn Harps are out of the FAI Cup, having been beaten 1-0 by Shamrock Rovers at Tallaght Stadium in their first round clash.
Rovers were much the better team in the first half, and deservedly led at the break thanks to a fine goal from Dan Carr on 22 minutes.
Harps, who gave a debut to American Joshua Smith, kept plugging away but always played second fiddle to a Rovers side who will have serious cup ambitions this year.
Harps pushed hard late on but overall Rovers were good value for their win.
