Bohemians left Oriel Park with a well-earned point last night as they held Dundalk to a frustrating 1-1 draw.

Owen Heary’s side had the first chance of the game after 15 minutes when Jason Byrne curled a first-time effort just over Peter Cherrie’s crossbar.

Dundalk went close four minutes later. Kurtis Byrne pulled a Sean Gannon ball sown but his half volley was turned around the post by goalkeeper Dean Delany.

There was nothing the Bohemians goalkeeper could do to stop the opening goal in the 28th minute. Darren Meenan’s corner was met by Brian Gartland and his header nestled into the corner of the net.

The lead lasted just three minutes as Bohemians hit back with a quick reply. Darragh Raynor whipped in a dangerous free-kick and Aidan Price was on hand to beat Cherrie with a near-post header.

The hosts increased the pressure after the break and thought they had won the game right at the death but John Mountney’s half volley was well saved before his header was cleared off the line by Derek Pender.
