SHAMROCK ROVERS BEAT GALWAY TO CLINCH TITLE

Shamrock Rovers set the seal on a title-winning Season when they beat Galway United 4-0 at Tallaght Stadium tonight.

Chris Turner opened the scoring for the Hoops on 31minutes with a good shot from twenty yards out.
Six minutes later, a Billy Dennehy free-kick eluded everyone, including the Galway goal-keeper Colin Wynne to make it 2-0 going into the break.

Former Galway United native, Karl Shepperd got booked for diving in the box on 60 mins, however Rovers soon got a penalty six minutes later when Rory Gartlan was sent-off for a foul on the Rover's man.
Shepperd slotted home the penalty for his 17th goal of the Season.

With Galway down to ten men it was a rear-guard approach by them to see out the match, care-taker boss John Brennan must have been disappointed to see Shamrock Rovers score again when Ronan Finn scored from just inside the box to make it 100 goals at the Tallaght Stadium for Michael O'Neill's men in two seasons at the new venue.

So for Galway its the relegation play-offs while Shamrock Rovers host PAOK in Tallaght in the Europa League next Thursday evening.

Man of the Match: Chris Turner
