Clontarf: Try: Sean Carey; Pens: Martin Dufficy 2, Peter O'Brien
In-form 'Belvo winger David Mongan crossed for his sixth try in AIB League and Cup fare this season as Phil Werahiko's men made it through to the cup's quarter-final stage, where they face a trip to Ballymena on November 21.
Despite poor weather conditions across the country, only a slight wind prevailed during this game which favoured the hosts in the opening half.
This third round tie offered the added spice of having the Jack Whelan Cup to play for, with the late Jack having strong connections with both clubs.
And both teams certainly did not disappoint, offering up a well-contested encounter which was on a knife edge until Conal Keane's 74th-minute penalty kick steered Old Belvedere into the last-eight.
Wind-assisted 'Belvo showed signs of the form which sees them currently top Division 1B of the AIB League as their pack dominated in the opening stages.
Clontarf were offered little in the possession stakes as determined 'Belvo dug in from the off with Keane slotting over the first of his four penalties after six minutes.
