Recap: Gareth Bale's delicious cross into the box was turned home by McAuley who tried to get in the way before Robson-Kanu made contact. It was enough to put Wales through after struggling to break down N Ireland all game.

Wales will now await the winner of the match between Hungary and Belgium

Wales have reached the quarter-final of a major tournament for the first time since 1958! 
...

FULL-TIME: WALES 1-0 N IRELAND (McAuley OG)

...
94' N Ireland win a corner and McGovern also makes his way forward. No way through! 
...
94' Hennessey punches yet another long throw-in but Wales concede a free-kick after clearing the danger. 
...
FOUR MINUTES OF ADDED TIME! Can N Ireland find an equaliser or will Wales hang on?
...
89' Hennessey with a spectacular catch to deny Ireland a chance on a long throw-in. That was inspiring in the final moments of the game and his captain lets him know too. 
...
86' Ashley Williams is such a trooper! His left arm is clearly injured after the collision but he's not ready to come off! 
...
85' FIVE minutes to go here in Paris. Wales lead 1-0 and Ireland's Lafferty is looking to rally his troops with words of encouragement and runs of his own. 
...
83' Thankfully, both players are up and about now. Meanwhile, McAuley has come off as Magennis takes his place. 
...
81' OW! Williams and Williams collide on the pitch and they're both down on the pitch. The medics are on and checking up on them. They're sitting up and looked more shaken than bruised. 
...
...
79' With that goal, Gareth Bale and Alvaro Morata are now joined at the top of the goalscoring charts by Mr Own Goal. 
...
75': Ramsey releases Bale on the left and he whips in a delicious cross into the six-yard box. McAuley doesn't want Robson-Kanu to get on the end of it and sticks a foot out, diverting it into his own net. 
...

75' GOOOAAALLL! Wales lead 1-0! It's an own goal from McAuley!

...
72' N Ireland need an alternate strategy here. They've attempted 19 crosses into the box and completed 0 crosses so far! David Moyes must be engrossed though. 
...
70' Oooh! A long ball forward almost allows N Ireland to score before Hennessey comes out to thwart any attempt on goal. 
...
Wake up little one, Wales are knockin on the door...

...
65' After a frenetic 15 minutes, the game has slowed down a bit in the second half now. So we'll cast our eyes to the stands to pick out some fans and make them famous.
...
63' SUBSTITUTION: Joe Ledley comes off and Jonathan Williams comes on. 
...
60' At the hour mark, the player who has created the most chances is *drum roll* Jonny Evans - a grand total of 2 chances!
...
58' YELLOW CARD: Neil Taylor goes into the book for a foul on Jamie Ward as N Ireland looked to counter. 
...
57' SAVE! Bale almost gets his third goal from a free-kick in this tournament. McGovern dives to his left and keeps it out. Great football all around!
...
56' FOUL! Gareth Bale wins a free-kick in Bale territory. I say 'wins' as he cons the referee by falling over. 
...
54': SUBSTITUTION: That's the last we'll see of Vokes as Hal Robson-Kanu comes on
...
52': VOKES... MISS! A cross comes into the box and he has a free header on goal. But it goes a few yards wide of the post. That was a big chance to take the lead! 
...
Here's an interesting stat from the first half
Passes completed: Wayne Hennessey (GK) - 12, Gareth Bale (FW) - 10! 
...
49' FOUL! Stuart Dallas is treading on dangerous territory. Already on a yellow, he brings down Gunter on a counter-attack launched by Joe Allen. Atkinson just warns him this time.
...
48' Lafferty make a burst through the Welsh defence and beats three players before he's stopped in his tracks. Warning signs for Wales. 
...
46' Ramsey and Bale try a one-two with the forward trying to hold the ball for his teammate but the Irish defence thwart any attempt at a counter-attack.
...
The teams are back out for the second half, we're moments away from the restart.
...
While Wales have struggled to get going, N Ireland have passed better in this match compared to the 1-0 loss to Germany. Opta says they've completed more passes in 45 minutes against Wales than they did in 90 against the Germans. 
...
...
PEEEEP! Half-time at the Parc des Princes and the score is 0-0. I wish I could say it was action-packed but we'll judge this game at full-time. 
...
44': YELLOW CARD! A reckless challenge on Gareth Bale from Stuart Dallas sees the Irishman go into the book. He will now miss the next match - if N Ireland reach the quarter-final.
