Two goals in the last five minutes from Bastien Hery and Dean Clarke gave Limerick a 5-3 win in a thriller at Markets Field.

Limerick hit the front after 13 minutes through Peter Cherrie and the young attacker added another on 18 minutes, jinking past two defenders before finishing brilliantly.

Bray replied through Ryan Brennan and it was soon 2-2, Aaron Greene netting with a header. Limerick were in front again when Rodrigo Tosi headed home. Bray equalised through a Gary McCabe penalty before Limerick struck again twice late on.

Drogheda United drew a blank in front of goal for the fifth match on the spin but did frustrate Bohemians at Dalymount Park, as Pete Mahon's visitors dug out a third successive scoreless draw.

All the goals came in the opening 25 minutes in an action-packed affair at Maginn Park. Derry took the lead on four minutes through Ronan Curtis' superb 20-yard free-kick and doubled it minutes later with Nathan Boyle's header. Galway did pull one back through Gary Shanahan.

Sligo and Finn Harps managed only one shot between them in a 0-0 draw at the Showgrounds.
