St Patrick's Athletic advanced to the Europa League second qualifying round on away goals after a 2-1 loss at Luxembourg's Jeunesse Esch on Tuesday saw the tie end 2-2 on aggregate.
Patrick Stumpf's finish on 22 minutes put Jeunesse 1-0 up in the first-round second leg to draw things level overall before Darren Dennehy headed in a crucial away goal for the Irish side in the 73rd minute.

Stumpf scored again with three minutes remaining to set up a nervy finale but the hosts' pressure thereafter was in vain and they had Adrien Portier sent off in injury time as he received a second yellow card.
St Pat's will now face either Dinamo Minsk of Belarus or Spartaks Jurmala of Latvia in the next round.
Meanwhile, Dundalk have gone nine points clear at the top of the Airtricity League Premier Division after a thrilling 4-3 win over Longford Town.
Despite a hat-trick from David McMillan, Longford appeared to have battled their way to a share of the points at Oriel Park as equalisers from Lee Duffy, Noel Haverty and Rhys Gorman cancelled out each of McMillan’s strikes.
But Ciaran Kilduff's injury-time header saw the Lilywhites snatch a last-gasp win which sees Stephen Kenny's side open-up a commanding lead at the top of the table.
