    I don't think you can say they're missing out on Youths football really as they are still getting the same years playing underage as everyone over the past few decades.

    I do agree with you that players who are 18 when the league kicks off should be allowed played U18 football and likewise for other age groups but January has always been the month they go on.

    When I heard they were introducing an U19 age group this season I thought initially it was a fantastic idea as it gives young lads an extra year underage before Adult football but when I heard that they have 'new' age group rules and read through them I thought to myself ''what is the point in this????". U19 should be for players born in 1992 and after not '93.

    So how long does this season run for? Is it on right through the winter period?

    Found the fixtures for the Southern section on the Tralee Dynamos website, it runs from August 28th til April 1st with a winter break from the 4th of December til the 15th of January. There is a cup competition too

    Edit: The fixtures for the Elite Division from the Bray website

    Thanks, FJ, but we had that. In typical Abbotstown fashion, fixtures appear to have been provided Division by Division - nobody got all three sections (Elite, Southern & Northern), so no-one can put the lot online on his/her own!

    We're still waiting for the Northern Division fixtures here, we've got the Elite and Southern.

    Any joy, Sam Heggy?

    I'd also be interested if anyone has heard how the season finishes: playoffs, quarter-finals or what. And any info on the Cup format (I know we'll only get the draw after it's made, duh!! ), will it be regional and then an open round or what?

    BTW, no sign of any of the fixtures on the FAI or Airtricity sites yet, though they went out at least a week ago!

    Not quite.

    Before I posted that, we only had fixtures for individual teams (Shelbourne, Salthill Devon, Bray Wanderers) in the Elite League.

    But I guess I should've said "full fixtures list for the Elite League" instead of raising your hopes of seeing some Northern Division fixtures in there...

    Full Fixtures!

    Finally, the combined full fixture list in date order - if anyone thinks it can be relied on - is made available here.

    Errors if spotted, please post them here in the thread ...

    PS: I don't plan to update scores week by week, but I would keep a table/tables if there was a reasonable chance of getting reliable results. Any offers?

    Is there any site keeping up to date tables. The LoI website... well, I'm not saying anything on the subject.
    A Championship: 4 years - 8 first teams - 0 financially ruined. First Division '14: 7 first teams.
    Opportunity seems lost somewhere in between for new clubs/regions to become part of LoI family.

    Fair play, the FAI might want to outsource the maintenance of the LoI website to the likes of foot.ie...

    Any idea how the promotion/relegation will work?

    The logical option would be if the bottom 2 teams in the Elite Division will be relegated and the Northern and Southern Division winners would be promoted (if they meet Elite Division requirements).

    Any confirmation of this?
