We need an Irish B Team. Or an Olympic team. It would be an ideal stepping stone for players to shine without actually having to move to foreign climbs to play in lower leagues 'proving themselves at a higher level'.
Other countires do this with their domestic leagues, we even do it with our junior leagues and first division clubs with some success. crowds of up to 10,000 would be likely and Tolka Dalymount Turners Cross would provide ideal venues. Would also improve the prospects of the irish clubs in Europe if the players got more experience of big matches and other styles of play.
Come on FAI get your thumb out of your arse.
