Fantastic five for Burke as Shamrock Rovers hammer Cork


A five-goal haul from Republic of Ireland international forward Graham Burke helped Shamrock Rovers thrash ten-man Cork City 6-0 in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division last night.

Deshane Dalling was sent off for the visitors when 2-0 down in first-half injury time in Tallaght.

Jack Byrne was on target for the Hoops as they inflicted a record league defeat on City.

Champions Dundalk were 2-1 winners away to Shelbourne.

Andrew Boyle and Patrick Hoban scored the Lilywhites with Gary Deegan netting a cracker for last year's First Division winners Shels who were unable to force an equaliser late on.

An Adam Liddle goal deep into injury time salvaged a 1-1 draw for Derry City at home to Finn Harps.

Ryan Connolly had put the Donegal man in front when he profited from a defensive error just after the half-hour.

Bohemians picked up a first win of the season with a 2-- victory away to Waterford.

Dan Mandroiu scored for Keith Long's side with Waterford's Sam Bone also scoring an own-goal at the RSC.

And St. Pat's survived the second-half dismissal of Ollie Younger to win 2-nil at Sligo.

Ronan Hale and Chris Forrester were on target for the Hoops.

Cabinteely got their First Division campaign off to an impressive start with a 4-2 win at home to Bray while Wexford and UCD drew one apiece.
