    *If Bohs go down, I think this leaves just St Pats as the only current club never to have been relegated?

    Technically City and Derry weren't relegated and any clubs who have never been promoted but yeah, Pats and Bohs are the only two to never play in the First Division.

    Bohs were never relegated but often re-elected.

    That's absolutely bull**** El P, and I knew this would crop up. Both Cork City and Derry City were quite rightly 'removed' from the PD and placed in the FD for valid reasons. The fact remains, in season 2010, both plied their trade in the FD.

    Weren't both new clubs so technically they weren't removed from the premier just starting as new clubs should in the first.

    Are you not just agreeing with his point, but just using expletives?

    Wasn't Derry City expelled from the league and a new club then started in the first division?

    Not sure about Cork as their fans always claim that the club is the same one that was formed in 1984.

    We've been over so many times over the years. I'm pretty sure you know the story and are just looking for a reaction. We all know what happened, and why it is claimed to be the same club. Although, with the gangsters that had been involved since 1984, I'm not sure that's really a good thing.

    I'm also not sure why a Limerick fan really cares enough to comment. Your fans on here are turning into what Waterford used to be like. It's not a real rivalry.

    For my own part I just don't like the way your club conducts itself. cork fall under the bohs umbrella on my spectrum of disliked clubs in that regard.

    Limerick won't have any rivals until such a time as pike bite the bullet and step up.








    I know you're all on the edge of your seats so Pats fans, UCD fan, Longford fans, Derry fans, I officially have nothing against your clubs.
