Meanwhile at Tolka Park, Shane Griffen was on hand for Shels to give them a 1-0 win over UCD, as
Derry City took a win on the road against Drogheda United thanks to an early goal from Adam O’Reilly.
In the last fixture, St Pat’s travelled to Cork, where Conor Carty and Tunde Owolabi traded openers within 15 minutes of the start. Joseph O’Brien-Whitmarsh had the homeside ahead at the break, but with no response to Jake Mulraney and Adam Murpy’s goals in the second half, the visitors walked away the victors.
