    Sporting Fingal

    Like Kildare County and Kilkenny City before them, it's disappointing Sporting Fingal have left the League and folded entirely. It's a pity neither club took the route of Cobh Ramblers and look to build a base, building for the future. The A Championship would be all the better for it.
    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.

  2. Thanks From:

    Yeah, definitely .... its a shame that there wasn't a core group of people willing to do this. Its like Dublin city, just folded and they are no more.
    The SFAI are the governing body for grassroots football in Ireland, not the FAI. Its success or the lack of is all down to them.

    Following on from your post on the Kildare County section of the site, do you know of any Fingal fans that have started going to the games of another LOI side?

    There were four Fingal fans in Inchicore last week (in Fingal gear, might've been more) for the Pats/Dundalk game.

    They got to see a cracker too, so hopefully they're back tonight
