Dundalk clinched a third successive League of Ireland Premier Division title after beating Bohemians 2-1 in Sunday night's game at Oriel Park.

The win moved Dundalk seven points clear of Cork City with two games left.

Andy Boyle put Dundalk ahead on 15 minutes and while Mark Quigley levelled from a controversial penalty on 29, Brian Gartland headed the winner on 62.

Dundalk will secure a second straight double if they beat Cork in the FAI Cup Final on 6 November.

Stephen Kenny's side are also competing in the group stage of the Europa League having narrowly missed out on qualifying for the Champions League group stage.

Dundalk were beaten 2-1 in Dublin by Zenit St Petersburg in their most recent European game on Thursday night but remain in contention for a place in the next round.
