Ireland manager Stephen Kenny feels the FAI should be concerned about the lopsided nature of the League of Ireland Premier Division for next season where seven of the ten teams are from the Dublin/Leinster area.
The drama of the managerial merry-go-round means it would be wrong to suggest that the League of Ireland is now switching to an ‘out of office’ setting after last Sunday’s FAI Cup final officially brought down the curtain on the season.
Stephen O'Donnell has officially resigned as the head coach of St Patrick's Athletic and offered 'special thanks' to Garrett Kelleher for giving him the opportunity in his first public statement after a dramatic week.
Pat Devlin believes that a new-look side in the league next season, a merger of two clubs but which will play under the name of Bray Wanderers, should aim to compete with the elite clubs in the Premier Division once they find their feet.
ST PATRICK'S Athletic have moved swiftly to replace Stephen O'Donnell with confirmation of their capture of Drogheda United boss Tim Clancy on a two-year deal as part of their “management team for the 2022 season.”
Stephen O’Donnell’s desire to leave St Patrick’s Athletic and move to Dundalk has triggered a League of Ireland managerial merry-go-round but the tensions created by his call could delay his switch from going through peacefully.
The armband he wears entitles him to lift the trophy, and while St Patrick’s Athletic stalwart Ian Bermingham admits he feared that his medal-collecting days were over due to the club’s slide over the last half-decade, the veteran says their Cup final success is a vindication of their hard work but also a nod to greater days ahead.
Defeat in the FAI Cup final on penalties not only denies Bohemians their first major trophy since a Setanta Cup win in 2010 but also closes off a route to Europe next season, Derry City now entering the Europa Conference League instead of the Gypsies.
IN keeping with the theme of FAI Cup finals at the Aviva Stadium, the Dublin derby between Bohemians and St Patrick's Athletic went all the way and the cool head of Saints midfielder Robbie Benson, who had twice ended up on the wrong side of a shootout in the showpiece during his time with Dundalk, ensured the cup will return to Inchicore.
