Match report | Preview
Paul Osam’s team started their two games against Attila Belvon’s men in fine form and will look to make it two wins out of two when they travel to Mervue on Thursday.

Early on, Barry Coffey reacted quickly to a dropped ball, but his shot from the edge of the area was too weak and bobbled wide of Agoston Kiss’ left-hand post. Then, Kameron Ledwidge was awarded a free kick on the left flank after a foul and his delivery was curled in nicely to the 18-yard box, only for Oisin McEntee’s headed effort from eight yards out to be safely collected by the goalkeeper.

McEneff had Ireland’s best chance of the opening quarter that didn’t go in after he was supplied with possession by Jason Knight, however the Coleraine man’s effort was straight at the ‘keeper after he connected well with it from a central position, 20 yards from goal.

Attila Belvon’s men attempted to rally an attack shortly after but they failed to beat the first man with a corner and then a series of attempted crosses. They did fashion something when Nathan Collins fouled Marcell Papp in the 19th minute in a dangerous position on the edge of the box, but Csaba Bukta’s delivery went over everybody for a throw-in.

The 25th minute saw Ireland eventually break the deadlock as Barry Coffey connected expertly at the back post with a deep Ledwidge cross from the left wing, sparking jubilant celebrations in the main stand.

Osam’s troops could have doubled their lead in the 32nd minute after an effort from the edge of the area from Ledwidge was only parried away to Ryan Cassidy’s feet but the St Kevin’s Boys striker couldn’t react sharply enough to turn home the loose ball as Kiss gathered.

Following the restart, Jason Knight had a great chance as he latched onto a bobbling loose ball, but the captain couldn’t make it 2-0. Then, Ledwidge blasted a cracking effort at goal from distance, but he was denied by a good save.

Domink Cipf found himself in space inside the Irish area in the 48th minute after a nice through-ball, but ‘keeper Kian Clarke did ever so well to come out to narrow the angle as Cipf’s right-footed shot arrowed past the far post much to the relief of the home defence.

The home side conceded late on from a headed effort from Kevin Kormendi but showed great spirit to rally once again in the dying embers through goalscorer McEneff whose header from a corner sealed a great win.
