Byrne's own goal gifts McDonald first victory as Limerick boss
Bohemians 1-2 Limerick FC
A late own goal from Dan Byrne gifted Limerick a first win in seven games as new boss Neil McDonald left Dalymount Park with all three points
Chiedozie Ogbene's 82nd-minute header from Bastien Hery's cross looked to be going wide before central defender Byrne knocked it into his own net.
Bohemians finished with 10 men when Dylan Hayes was shown a straight red card for a foul on Ogbene in stoppage time.
The home side were then incensed when Limerick's Shaun Kelly received just a yellow for taking down Jamie Doyle seconds later when the Bohemians substitute looked through on goal.
After a good start, Limerick were good value for their lead when it arrived on 15 minutes. Hery's free kick was flicked on by Robbie Williams for Rodrigo Tosi to score with a well-placed looping header for his seventh league goal of this campaign.
The home side hit back to clinically punished bad defending to level the scores on the half hour.
The lively Keith Ward picked out a sublime low pass across the box for Georgie Poynton who confidently drove his shot to the net past Limerick goalkeeper Freddy Hall.
