thumbnail Hello,

The Candystripes put their European woes behind them with an emphatic victory over UCD with Michael Duffy and Mark Timlin standing out

Derry City bounced back from their disappointing Uefa Europa League exit with a thrilling performance to defeat UCD 6-1. Midfielder Michael Duffy proved Derry's hero as he bagged the first hat-trick of his career, while Mark Timlin was a threat from full-back and was heavily involved in the build-up to a couple of the Candystripes goals.

Dundalk moved three points clear of Cork City with a 5-1 win over Bray Wanderers. Kurtis Byrne followed up his excellent midweek cameo against Hajduk Split with two more goals as the Lilywhites easily defeated Alan Mathews' side.

A first league goal from Steven Beattie helped Bohemians record a rare home win, and put a dent in Cork's title hopes. The Gypsies were helped by an impressive outing from Anto Murphy as they recorded a deserved 2-0 victory.

Darius Kierans' temporary spell as Drogheda United manager ended with a 1-0 away win against Shamrock Rovers, thanks to a goal from Gavan Holohan and an excellent goalkeeping display from Micheal Schlingermann.

St Patrick's Athletic got their title campaign back on track as they defeated Athlone Town 2-0 on the road. Ian Bermingham repeatedly got forward to threaten the Athlone defence, while Sean Hoare and Chris Forrester bagged a goal apiece.

Elsewhere, Sean Maguire's early goal took him off the mark for Sligo Rovers and also inspired them to a 2-0 win at home to Limerick.
