    At the moment a Athletic groundshare with Crumlin for the Sunday side although games are on Friday nights, the Saturday (not the one in the cup) I think play games in CIE Ranch's ground and also in Belgrave (Bluebell). I reckon 80% of the squad would be locals or have strong famaily ties to the area.

    CIE play in the area known as 'The Works', a five minute stroll from the Blacklion. I don't know to much about squad.

    Had no idea Maynooth had made it this far. Lived there for ten years. An away trip back to the college would be fun!

    I'd say Maynooth would have to play in Richmond or somewhere else. They play the majority of their games on the college astro but I can't imagine there or Maynooth Town's ground being acceptable for a proper cup match. The university team is theoretically at least joined up with Maynooth Town (hence Maynooth University Town FC) but I'm not sure if there's any real crossover between the two.

    The college astro is just a caged pitch with zero facilities for spectators, so not there. Maynooth FC's pitch isn't bad by the standard of that level, but not sure how many could actually be allowed there. There might be somewhere in Meath that's closer than Richmond.

    I say Inchicore cos it's closest to Maynooth, the uni team is managed by Barry Prederville ex Pats and there is or was a link up between the uni and Pats. Sean Hoare and Jamie McGrath both studied there while at Pats. If they got a big home draw presumably it'd be reversed. The first team pitch at Maynooth Town is fenced along both sidelines but that's about the it

    If Avondale were allowed to host an FAI Cup quarter final a couple of years ago, Maynooth would be allowed to host a first round game with similar facilities. If there's a fence along the side of the pitch, sure there's little else needed to hold less than 500 people at maximum that'd attend.

    Sheriff played Athlone in a similar location a few years ago. Joke that it was allowed to be played there. I guess it depends on who they get drawn against.

    In the Cup up North this year any team below the 2nd tier that was drawn at home had to automatically concede home advantage to a Premier Division team.

    So the non-league qualifiers for the cup this year are:

    Pike Rovers
    Leeds
    Maynooth University
    Inchicore Athletic
    CIE Ranch
    Dublin Bus
    Skerries Town
    North End United
    Blarney United
    Cockhill Celtic
    Home Farm
    Newmarket Celtic
    I phoned the speaking clock to hear a voice speak, it said - "At the tone you will be very much alone"

    I remember a Donegal newspaper headline when harps unexpectedly beat Home Farm, who had been flying up to that.

    "Harps Throw Spanner in Farm Machinery".

    Great days. *

    Don't hear any mention of Belgrove in their name any more. Any time I walk past their ground its still called Home Farm FC.
