Limerick get an extension

LIMERICK FC have been given an additional four days to meet with the conditions needed to be granted a First Division licence.

The Shannonsiders were granted a provisional licence on Monday, pending their ability to prove security on the financial commitments they made in their application. That documentation has yet to be received and the independent licensing committee have extended their deadline to Monday at 5.0pm.

Limerick are involved in mediation with the FAI over their proposed friendly with Barcelona last year.

Meanwhile, Galway United will today discover their fate as their appeal is heard by the appeals committee after they were demoted from the Premier Division to the A Championship.

The westerners believe they have the necessary documentation in place to win their place in the top flight back.
