    Although there have been a few different entities the current club is the same one that entered the league in 1937.

    There was certainly a dispute in 1983 that ended up in the High Court but the judge ruled in favour of Limerick City ahead of Limerick United.

    Otherwise the same club has kept the LoI spot since 1937.

    It can not be the same club, Limerick AFC/Limerick United were wounded up and dissolved. Also Limerick City/Limerick which dropped out the league after 2006 season were not given a license as we know, if they were same club, they would have been given one.
