Shamrock Rovers beat a nine man Limerick at Milltown.

A penalty from Ray Treacy gave Shamrock Rovers the goal to beat a Limerick side reduced to nine players.

Rovers existing on a goal a game ration.

The Limerick was not helped when Tony Fitzgerald and Mickey McDonnell were sent off within two minutes of each other.

It really has turned into a bit of a farce.

Shamrock Rovers won the game 1-0 under player-manager John Giles.
