Robbie Williams took centre-stage at Thomond Park last night and marked a solid overall performance with a stunning headed goal which enabled Limerick continue their great late season form.
The points were of more importance to Bohemians but they left empty handed thanks to Williams goal after 79 minutes.
Draw looked likely
A goalless draw looked on the cards prior to the goal as Limerick missed several chances and were lucky not to fall behind after 57 minutes.
Shane Cusack, deputising in goal for Barry Ryan for the home side, slipped as he attempted to gather a cross from Karl Moore but the ball trickled wide.
Survived that scare
Having survived that scare Limerick continued to dominate and Joe Gamble set up Sam Oji inside the six yard mark but the ball flew over Delaneys crossbar.
Bohemians deserved something from the lacklustre contest despite four players being yellow carded, three from Limerick.
Bohemians lost Shane Murray who was stretchered off after 16 minutes and Chris Lyons went into the action after a six minute delay.
Get on top
Limerick’s Carel Tiofack had an effort blocked and Craig Curran shot straight at Dean Delaney as the home side began to get on top.
Daniel Corcoran headed wide for Bohemians and in time added on superb play by Rory Gaffney deserved a goal but his effort sailed over.
