The FAI have issued sanctions to both Bohemians and Shamrock Rovers over the crowd trouble which marred last Friday's derby between the Dublin rivals.

Home side Bohs faced five charges, while Rovers faced two. Neither side appealed the Disciplinary Committee decisions.

"The Football Association of Ireland Disciplinary Committee has issued sanctions against both Bohemian FC and Shamrock Rovers following the outbreak of violence at Dalymount Park on April 15," said the FAI in a statement.

"Bohemian FC was charged with five offences under the categories of 'Pitch Invasion', 'Match and Player Safety Obligations' and 'Missiles' - objects thrown by supporters.

"Shamrock Rovers was charged with two offences: 'Pitch Invasion' and 'Missiles', relating to conduct of their own supporters.

"The FAI Stadia & Security Committee are reviewing Match Operations on the night of the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division game and met with Bohemian FC regarding how the fixture was managed on the night.

"Both clubs opted not to appeal the decisions."
