Shelbourne’s highest scoring home win over Cork City in the league came in the 1992-93 season. Paul Doolin (2), Gary Haylock, Mark Rutherford and Padraig Dully (2) scored for the Reds in a game that saw John Caulfield go in goals after Phil Harrington was red carded.
Cork City’s highest scoring home win over Shelbourne was in 2013. Four goals from Ciaran Kilduff (who now plays for Shels) and one from Danny Morrissey saw the Rebel Army beat Shels by five goals to three. The 5-3 win was the last time the sides have met in league competition.
