Republic of Ireland round-up: Cork keep European dream alive

Cork City FC kept their UEFA Intertoto Cup hopes alive with a 5-1 win over Monaghan United FC.

Cork City FC kept their UEFA Intertoto Cup hopes alive with a 5-1 win over relegated Monaghan United FC in the FAI National League league.

New ownership
Cork are under new ownership after businessman Brian Lennox took over the club during the week, and they celebrated the change with a comfortable win. Colin Patrick O’Brien put Cork ahead on nine minutes, and four minutes later tall striker Noel Hartigan added a second. Bottom side Monaghan pulled one back on 15 minutes courtesy of a Declan Field penalty.

Points safe
The scoreline remained the same until the second half, when Cork made sure of the three points with goals from Ollie Cahill (51 minutes), Hartigan (66) and James Mulligan (77). With one game remaining, Cork have moved into joint third position in the table, level with Bohemian FC on 49 points.
