Rebel Army: very nearly back in the Premier League
            Cork City FC stand on the brink of promotion after beating nearest rival; Monaghan United 3-1 tonight at Turner's Cross.  City supporters will not care about any other details of tonight's game other than the result and The Rebel Army are now two points clear of the Magic Mons with five games to play.  The Mons do however have a game in hand, so there can be little doubt that victory for the away side would have closed the door on the possibilities of automatic promotion for the Real Capital club.     
Cummins celebrates crucial second goal
     There was no love lost in this game as City manager Tommy Dunne are far from friends following their time spent in Cork and the vitriol flung from Collins at his fellow Dubliner.
           On the pitch; City dominated proceedings early doors and any home nerves were eased when Duggan curled one into the top corner in the opening 90 seconds.  Graham Cummins gave City a cushion on the half hour mark with a smart finish from just inside the box.  The game was effectively made safe midway through the second half when Vinny Sullivan latched onto a through ball before striking past the advancing 'keeper. 
           Monaghan pulled a goal back three minutes after going three down, but any hopes of a revival were squashed when the Brennan brothers were both sent off inside the closing 10 minutes.
Tommy Dunne has done a fantastic job as Cork City boss
           Overall, a fine night's work for Cork City who now appear to be a couple of wins away from a return to the top flight.  This observer feels that anyone with an interest in Irish football will believe that the Premier League is precisely where Cork City FC's players and fans belong.  From the brink of extinction, we're very nearly back where we belong.
