Goals from Karl Sheppard and Garry Buckley and an own goal earned Cork City a Premier Division record tenth win from ten as John Caulfield's side stayed nine points clear at the top.
All three goals came in the final half-hour of an evenly-contested game of relatively few chances, although City can point to hitting the woodwork twice as proof of their greater edge in attack.
