    Winding Up Order Against Company Behind Limerick

    See https://twitter.com/thephoenixmag/st...48312202846208

    It's the Revenue that lodged it. Not good.

    How many more clubs are in a precarious position? I am thinking off the top of my head Bray, Athlone and now Limerick.

    Will Limerick even make it to the end of the season? It's a bit like the Austria-Hungary on 4th October 1918.

    Also I've been posting on foot for over a hundred years and this is the greatest analogy I have ever seen.

    Pat O'Sullivan's Galtee Fuels went into liquidation in May, is that what this is in reference to, or is the club more directly?

    It's the club.

    There was a winding up petition presented to the High Court on 17th September against Munster Football Club Limited.

    I don't see how it has much bearing on anything given the stage of the season.

    Pretty damning indictment of the circus that it's the revenue that has been left unpaid.

    Wow, that is serious. revenue don't rush into these things but when they do there tends to be one outcome, and its not good for Limerick.Usually Revenue will make every effort to avoid taking a winding up order unless (a) the company refuse to engage with them or (b) the company are a complete and utter basket case financially.

    At this point, staying up is more a matter of making the club a better investment/purchase opportunity. As it stands I don't see how any kind of PD license could be granted for next season, survival or no.

    If there's a club to give a license to that is, though I'd imagine the FAI would insure some ramshackle outfit would play out of Jackman to keep the numbers at 20.

    It is and it isn't.

    I mean obviously it's serious for the company but that company wasn't entering a team next year anyway.

    We'll just have to wait until the new year to see if whatever poor eejit becomes the new saviour of Limerick senior football is a big money eejit like Pat O'Sullivan or a no money eejit. Or maybe we are all out of eejits. (I doubt it somehow)

    Either way Munster Football Club Limited being wound up is fairly irrelevant.

    Shels got three in a year back in the day and survived them all.

    They don't rush into these things, but they tend to be very reasonable if you try to come to a deal - a reasonable downpayment and a repayment schedule will keep them happy.

    But LTID's posts suggest the board mightn't be that bothered...

    It'll be a real shame if we have to start from the bottom again, all that money Pat OSullivan put into the club all for nothing he'll be leaving the club in the same position (or worse) as when he took over, such a shame as things were looking positive for a while.

    As someone on one of the fan pages pointed out, the clubs publicity activities have ceased bit by bit. The Facebook and Twitter pages last updated two weeks ago, and I don't think the website has been updated in nearly a month. I'd imagine the non playing staff/volunteers employed by the club have never been lower in number.

    O'Sullivan certainly did pump a mountain of cash into the club, but there could be a lot written on how so much of it was ill-spent.

    Provided you haven’t screwed them on previous deals, obviously.

    It was nearly a badge of honour back in the day. Can’t remember if we ever got one but licensing day and the days leading up to it used to see some “frank and meaningful dialogue”.

    Shels got away with three in a row, so they're fairly lenient even if you do screw them over it seems!

    I kind of imagine them as being like Pepe Le Pew; always chasing slowly, but never gives up and gets you in the end.
