82'

Danny Morrissey replaces Shane Duggan for Limerick.

80'

GOAL!

Conan Byrne scores for St. Patrick's Athletic. Limerick are shell-shocked here as the substitute Byrne meets a cross from the right with his head and plants a low header in the bottom corner.

78'

Big chance for Jamie Lennon to complete the comeback as he gets into the box and checks back before shooting low, but another fine save from Tommy Holland denies him.

77'

PENALTY SCORED!

Conan Byrne scores for St. Patrick's Athletic from the penalty spot. Byrne is fouled in the box and he steps up to put the ball in the roof of the net.

75'

Substitution

Thomas Byrne replaces Jake Keegan for St. Patrick's Athletic.

70'

Ian Bermigham's ball from the left finds Conan Byrne at the back post, but with Dennehy standing his ground he can only nudge the ball towards goalkeeper Holland.

64'

Limerick will look to break every chance they get and that's precisely what they do as a Saints attack breaks down on the edge of the box. Darren Murphy plays a ball in behind for Connor Ellis to run onto but Lee Desmond folows him all the way and does brilliantly to hold him up and win the ball.

63'

A couple of huge opportunities as space opens up for Dean Clarke to shoot on the edge of the box, but the ball bobbles and he hits fresh air. Working the ball out wide to Simon Madden, the full back runs to the byline and pulls the ball back for Keegan, but the forward has overrun the ball and Limerick survive.

55'

Connor Ellis has had some great moments of skill up front and you can add Karl O'Sullivan to that, as she shimmies inside and slips in the striker, but Desmond is able to stab the ball away.

52'

Pats should be level as a rare Limerick mistake in defence lets Dean Clarke in on goal. Killian Brouder's clearance hit Darren Murphy and bounced into Clarke's path, but Tommy Holland stands up strong and denies him from point-blank range. Great stop by the young keeper.

48'

Pats have started much more positively, and Lee Desmond's effort is clawed away by Tommy Holland.

46'

Saints needed to do something about being overrun in midfield and Liam Buckley has moved quickly, replacing Conor Clifford and Killian Brennan with Jamie Lennon and Conan Byrne. Byrne has an immediate impact as he wins a corner before crossing for Ian Bermigham, who glances a header wide.

46'

Substitution

Jamie Lennon replaces Conor Clifford for St. Patrick's Athletic.

46'

Substitution

Conan Byrne replaces Killian Brennan for St. Patrick's Athletic.

46'

Second Half

The second half between St. Patrick's Athletic and Limerick has started.

45' + 2'

It looks like Conan Byrne is getting ready to come on for the second half.

45' + 2'

Half Time

It is half-time between St. Patrick's Athletic and Limerick.

45' + 2'

Fantastic effort from Conor Clifford, who rides a challenge just outside the box, finds his feet and thrashes a shot at goal that just clears the crossbar.

45' + 1'

Saints' half summed up as Jake Keegan finally gets the ball in space... but he's 30 yards from goal and his attempt to play in Killian Brennan is snuffed out.

45'

One minute added on.

42'

Unlucky for Maguire as he hooks a first-time pass over the top for Fitzgerald but it kicks on too far and into the arms of Clarke.

39'

The first poor set piece from Limerick as Murphy's corner flies out of play on the opposite side.

38'

So close to number two for Limerick! Darren Murphy picks out Cantwell on the right with a lovely pass and he plays in a cross that Billy Dennehy can't control, but it bounces for Fitzgerald, and his volley beats Clarke but also the post. Moments later, Karl O'Sullivan finds space on the edge of the box and his shot is deflected over.

36'

Bermingham finds a pocket of space down the left and chips in a cross towards the near post. Jake Keegan, who hasn't had much ball to work with, gets his head on it but he can't get his head around the ball enough to get it on target.

34'

Pats' end product hasn't been there when needed. This time Killian Brennan's free kick from just inside the Limerick half sails harmlessly over everyone's head and wide.

33'

The home fans here are incensed as they feel all the decisions are going against them. Will Fitzgerald catches Madden in possession down the right and wins the physical battle before playing in Ellis. The ball is blocked back to the edge of the box, where Maguire's attempted shot is also charged down.

32'

Yellow Card

Mick Leahy is booked for St. Patrick's Athletic.

32'

And that should really be a penalty to Pats as Killian Brennan is clipped in the area by Eoin Wearen. No real protests from the home side though.

30'

Limerick's work off the ball has been excellent. Pats have had most of the ball since the goal but they're being harried into turning back towards their own half time and again.

28'

Chance for Pats as a ball lofted in from the left falls between two unmarked Saints, but Dean Clarke doesn't get a firm contact on the ball.

27'

Connor Ellis has been excellent in the lone striker role for Limerick. He holds the ball up again and, somewhat theatrically, goes down under a challenge from Conor Clifford.

24'

Pats getting hold of the ball a little more in the right areas now, but they'll require better than Dean Clarke's wild effort from 25 yards. He had space to run into but opted for the shot.

22'

The home side have been a yard off the pace all night, while Limerick have been excellent on and off the ball. 

17'

PENALTY SCORED!

Billy Dennehy scores for Limerick from the penalty spot. No less than Limerick deserve as Markey is late on Maguire - who found himself in shooting range for the fourth time in this game - and Dennehy sends his former teammate Brendan Clarke the wrong way from the spot.

16'

Penalty for Pats as Darragh Markey takes out Barry Maguire in the act of shooting.

11'

Great chance for Limerick as Maguire robs Clifford in midfield and offloads to Ellis, who quickly feeds Will Fitzgerald on the left. He finds Maguire arriving late in the box, and his effort is straight at Clarke and gathered at the second attempt. Moments later, Limerick spread the play again and Maguire shoots once more, but gets under the ball.

7'

A warning for Ryan Brennan as he commits his second foul in quick succession, this time on Billy Dennehy, and Limerick have another opportunity to get it in the box. Dennehy swings the ball in himself. and Eoin Wearen can't get enough on his glancing header to steer it on target,

6'

Free kick in a adangerous position for the Blues as Connor Ellis nutmegs Conor Clifford and glides by him with ease, before being nudged over by Ryan Brennan. The Pats player felt he went down easy, but it was a foul. Barry Maguire elects to shoot but skews his effort a long way off-target,

5'

Noisy start from the home fans in front of the TV cameras, but little goalmouth action for either side,

2'

Early chance for Limerick to get it in the box as Darragh Markey's poor touch forces Simon Madden to concede the throw, but Pats manage to scramble clear.
