    It'll happen even on a peno shoootout, we will be playing in Belfast too. Not wishful thinking, I think it will just go that way. Winning in Belfast would be the shock though!

    Was thinking about this the other day. Conan Byrne tweeted a copy of his article from the programme the other night. Piece was encouraging people to take in a game in the league. Thought the timing was strange with their being no games until February. Internationals during the domestic season should be used by the FAI to promote the league. We'll always have the people at internationals that turn their nose up at the league but the league should be put front and centre at every opportunity. Needs a change of mindset within Abbotstown.

    They only gave tickets to their members. If it was general sale all their scum woukd have travelled
    Given the ticket allocation it would never have progressed beyond members and season ticket holders. We have previously travelled to numerous venues down south with no restrictions and no issues.

    It's very possible that the restrictions were to ensure full safety from the *natives outside the ground.

    *there is a large part of the community in Dundalk that are originally from Belfast and left due to The Troubles which carries its own baggage.

    Well this thread went to a fairly awful place. Don't have time to be going through it line by line so discussion has been binned as it's going nowhere good.
