Brendan Clarke produced a string of saves to enable Limerick end their three-match losing streak with a deserved draw at Dalymount Park.

Both Bohs Limerick had won just eight points each from the opening series of nine games and it showed in the first half as creativity was at a premium.

When Bohemians did manage to fashion a sight at goal, they were denied by the brilliance of Clarke. Just past the half hour, the Dubliner was forced to go full stretch in preventing a dipping volley by Dylan Watts arcing into the corner.

Clarke, the St Patrick's Athletic stopper for their 2013 title success, was once more at his brilliant best on the hour. Eoghan Stokes was given too much space to pick his spot but the visiting keeper got across to push the effort away from danger.

Limerick, whose only previous point in eight games came against champions Cork City, might have nicked it in a game of few clear-cut openings.

Veteran striker Mark O'Sullivan went close in the first half, as did Billy Dennehy in the second, but they were also fortunate late on to have Shaun Kelly clear Keith Ward's shot off his own line.

BOHEMIANS – Supple; Buckley, D Byrne, Casey (Moore 88), Leahy; Morris, Lunney; Watts, Ward, Grant (Corcoran 80); Stokes.

LIMERICK – Clarke; Kelly, Whitehead, Brouder (D Dennehy 44), Tracy (Maguire 67); Duggan, Fitzgerald (Morrissey 76); Cantwell, Coleman, B Dennehy; M O’Sullivan.

REF – J McLoughlin (Dublin)
