    Last time, I went via Amsterdam with Belavia. Wasn't too expensive. A cheaper option could be to Tallinn, then Air Baltic via Riga, which worked well once.
    Ive seen online that no visa required for short visits ? They don't even seem to have an embassy in Ireland.

    They have no great European pedigree to be fearful of if not favourites then it would be at the very least a 50/50 tie.

    I saw that myself but seems very long way round there has to be a handier way.

    As far as I know that only applies if you fly directly to Minsk. Think thats what Brendy means when he says "Flying in and out". If you arrive at the border you will need a Visa.

    They were only admitted to European competitions for the 2017/18 seasons. They had a 6-1 aggregate win last year against Europa. There's a certain unknown quantity about them alright, but there's evidence (check out the highlights of the game against Europa) that they'll be a very strong side.

    That, and the fact that we're in a pretty bad place doesn't fill me with confidence.

    Love days like this, although it used to be more fun when they did the teams one by one.

    If Dundalk can avoid the Polish team then they got a good chance, Riga or the team from the Faroe islands would be great.


    Shamrock rovers.................I used to go on about how decent Vaduz were on here and that they would beat a LOI team no probs, but that was when they were in the top Swiss division. Now they are in tier two, and even though they looked relatively compact and a decent team when I saw them last season this season they were pure rubbish, and were hanging round the relegation zone for most of the season. So beatable and a great trip for me! Love Vaduz, great spot. Otherwise Vitebsk, but no chance against the other teams, not with Bradley in charge anyway.


    Cork.......manageable draw, but with their form at the moment you never know, on their day they should beat all those teams, hoping for the team from the Faroes.


    Pats, if they get Riteriai they will be laughing all day, might have a chance against Stjarnan, but otherwise nope.

  10. Thanks From:

    Haugesund haven't had a great start to their league campaign, 8th at the moment, played 11, won 4, drew 4, lost 3.

    Aberdeen, Minsk and Norrhoping would be too strong for us I'd imagine.

    Yeah maybe, depends on where the second leg is, if its at Richmond then maybe, on a wet night with a full crowd behind them and McCabe on point, yeah..............or maybe Harry going with 5 at the back again? Which team, i dont know?
    Will be home around then, might head up and see for myself.............love the euro nights at pats

    Yeah, one minute he was there, the next gone. Just like that. Happened really quick. But I think he didn't mind too much since Pats won the game

    Good draw for them. Avoiding Polish champs was the priority!
