    Longford announcing on twitter that their next home game at the time was at home to Athlone in the cup, around a week or two before the actual draw. They didn't draw Athlone.

    FAI refusing to sanction Limerick's friendly with Barcelona.

    It showed, all at once, the indifference, incompetence, and arrogance of the FAI, and also showed just how supine the LOI clubs are.

    The chancers 'representing' Barcelona who were wined and dined by Limerick in the lead up to this debacle have an even better story tbf... The truth will out some day.

    The Galway United 2006 promo video to the IAG and the subsequent Maxi meltdown in Merrion Square has to be up there.(sound not working on this? Sorry)
    If anyone has a copy of this with sound or the Galway vid that'd be grand.

    A version of this with the sound on would be immense.

    Dundalk/former owner looking for 100's of thousands of Euro compensation for damage to an artificial pitch that had already been dug up for being sub standard?? Claiming that a big shed was worth 8 million and if it wasnt wanted there was a guy in Northern Ireland who would buy after its torn down. Independent licencing, licencing in general. Drogheda United's new ground planning application, Dundalk FC's away section and lack of minerals and crisps. Lack of direct bus routes to certain grounds in Dublin.....

    A personal favourite was a UCD v Waterford Premier Division game in 2005 having kick-off delayed for 45 minutes.....because the FAI forgot to appoint a referee

    I remember that game; was busy till 9:30 or so (it was a Monday evening) so couldn't make it. Sent a text shortly after full-time to see what the result was and was told the second half was only kicking off. So got a bonus 25 minutes in the end.

    On the topic, Paul Marley needs a mention.

    Yeah the Paul Marney situation and Pats getting their Champions of Ireland trophy is up there definitely.

    The celebrations in Oriel Park the night they 'won' the league were something else. Pat Dolan took off with a leap at the full time whistle that any centre forward would be proud of then sprinted from the players he was mauling to in front of the supporters in the stand looking like he was about to do a Klinsman dive but then though better of it, which would have been some sight and in his suit!! It was as if St Pats had actually won the cup (back then) and league double with the Champions League thrown in on top. A trophy was even produced from somewhere to pass around.
