Airtricity League resumed on Friday evening

Following last weekend’s weather enforced break, the Airtricity League Premier Division resumed this Friday evening with the Oriel Park meeting of Dundalk and Cork City topping the bill. The match was shown live on EIR Sport and in a fraught affair, the hosts prevailed by one goal to nil to close the gap to just one point behind the leaders. Bohemian went down to a one nil defeat to Dublin rivals St Patrick’s Athletic in Dalymount Park while further south, Tallaght Stadium saw Shamrock Rovers crush Derry City by six goals to one with Graham Burke scoring a quartet. The Markets Field witnessed Limerick score the only goal to defeat visitors Bray Wanderers while Sligo Rovers, playing their fourth straight home match, suffered a two one defeat by second place Waterford in the Showgrounds.
