    Are the LoI clubs in some way compelled to take part? Is there any reason why Pats or Rovers, say, might not just decline to enter the competition at all?

    Surely easier for the LFA and the FAI to get their heads out of their collective asses and make the competition more viable ? maybe convert to an U19 competition ? less matches ? dedicated dates ? Anything to give the competition some identity other than another liability on clubs.

    Just play it as a pre season for loi teams Cup. Take the end of January to the league start in February and squeeze as much of it in there as possible. That way the LSL teams have a better chance while also playing actual LOI teams and it has a set date. Maybe do it as group stages in pre season then the teams that top their groups or however the numbers work qualify out for knockouts to be played before June.

    No, and they proved that in 1924/5 when all the LOI teams withdrew because the LFA wouldn't agree to excuse them from the first two rounds. The LFA backed down and gave them the two rounds the following year.

    Does that still hold today though?

    Or would there be a difference between "You have to take part" per the rules and "You have to take part" per FAI politics?

    I know from doing my own research into our participation in this competition in the mid 90s there were a few seasons that we didnt enter a team in the LSC . Cant remember the exact reason could be lack of nos and as far as I can remember I dont think we were fined!

    great idea Rathfarnham. That was the way the old league cup competition used to be run!

    Never mind the LSC we should have the League Cup down to the semis at least before the start of the season, like in the good ol' days (mid 90s anyway).

    yeah 5-1. very hard to get information on who scored for us and lineout/subs. Forza got the ball rolling for me and was superb as was at the game but as for filling the rest of the blanks nothing.. even got our under 19 mgr email address from our administrator and sent an email and still no info!
    Its like the secret service.

    wish this tournament would go tbh..

    Outrageous comment. It's around since 1892 and is of greater importance to Intermediate sides than it is clubs in the League.
    It's also not obligatory to enter.

    Agree 100%
    Cabo are in the quarter final and are up for it big time , for intermediate sides its huge and for clubs that are not going to be winning the main cups it is a chance of silverware.
    Winning the LSC was a springboard for Shels recently,
