By Denis Hurley for the Evening Echo.
It was comfortable for Cork City as they achieved a first league victory since August 3 by seeing off Limerick at Turner’s Cross on Friday night.
Jimmy Keohane’s goal after 91 seconds put the home side into a lead that they wouldn’t lose, though Limerick did respond well as Barry Maguire and Billy Dennehy went close before Danny Morrissey drew a good save from Peter Cherrie.
The second half was seven minutes old when the lead was doubled, with Keohane the creator this time. After playing a one-two with Daly-Bütz, his good vision saw the ball moved to Sadlier, who shimmied past Holland and fired in.
There were further opportunities for Sadlier, McCarthy Daly-Bütz and sub Pierce Phillips but Holland saved well each time, however in injury time City did a third goal as Aaron Barry met Sadlier’s corner at the near post to cap the win.
