Ballymun Kickhams will face reigning All-Ireland club champions Kilmacud Crokes in a mouth-watering Dublin SFC quarter-final following their hard-earned victory over Ballinteer St John's at Parnell Park yesterday.

Castleknock finished runners-up in Group 2 following their 1-12 to 1-10 victory over St Sylvesters, while Kilmacud Crokes took top spot with their third straight win at Skerries Harps' expense, 1-17 to 0-17.

Raheny thumped Lucan Sarsfields 7-15 to 2-6 to top Group 3 and earn a quarter-final against St Vincent's. Cuala had to settled for the runners-up spot, despite beating Thomas Davis 1-13 to 0-12, and will now face St Jude's who won Group 4 after accounting for Whitehall Colmcille by 1-12 to 1-9.

St Vincent's took second spot in Group 4 after edging out Na Fianna by 1-16 to 0-18 thanks to defender Shane O'Leary's late winning point.
