Posted on Updated on

untitled7On this day 24 years ago, a Paul Mooney strike from 40 yards helped Derry City to a 3-2 win against Shelbourne in a dramatic Premier Division fixture played in front of a packed Brandywell Stadium.

A Jonathan Speak effort put City in front at the break before goals from Anto Whelan and Padraig Dully gave Shels the lead with 12  minutes to play.

Current Derry City head coach Donal O’Brien headed in the equaliser with five minutes left before Mooney’s stunning strike earned the Candy Stripes all 3 points to send them top of the table.
