    Nah selling property that isn't yours to sell sounds much easier, in fact it's so easy some club decided to do it numerous times 😂😂😂. Btw you won't find anybody who will defend what POS did over the last few years so I don't think anybody is going to get upset by your silly comment!
    It seems the majority of LOI people aren't happy that Limerick FC are gone but some childish people like to kick others when they are down but this is LOI and trouble is never far away but some forget this.

    I don't mean to imply that TD's can wave a magic wand and fix the situation, but they can employ soft power here as they have done in the recent past.

    Just a very short while ago, Limerick councillors, Senators and TD's were tripping over themselves to call attention to/speak out about the proposed closing down of the Lyric FM studio in the city, to the extent that the decision to do so has been deferred after government pressure/intervention/a word in the ear.

    Now, a football club is not the same as a radio station (though, with "up to 30 employees", not all of them full-time I would wager, Lyric FM wouldn't exactly be miles ahead of Limerick FC in terms of contribution to the local economy, at least when the club was functioning in the halcyon days of two years ago), but given that Limerick FC is a business in the city, and enjoys a core following of a few hundred, you would expect the same kind of response. Hell, they held a special city council meeting over Lyric FM. Elected representatives can condemn inaction and awful ownership, they can raise the profile of the issue in the media, they can offer to mediate, they can lend support and credence to any new entity being considered by having their name attached.

    While I'm not discounting that the city's TD's may have tried to do something privately, they haven't been vocal and I don't expect them to be either. The goodwill isn't there like it was with Lyric, and I fully accept that this is the club's fault.
    I do think that Lyric is very different to Limerick. Lyric has far more people (voters) interested in it - 100k listeners per the most recent JNLRs, compared to the few hundred you mention going to Limerick games. It's effectively a state body and financially it's much easier to argue for its retention compared to a bankrupt football club which needs a new wealthy owner but has just come out of a process to find one, and hasn't.

    I also think Lyric - even with, say, 20 full time staff - would have a much larger contribution to the Limerick economy, which had only a handful of full-time staff, and which has once again hit a number of local businesses.

    Obviously it's very unfortunate that the club has gone - there's a number of factors, from O'Sullivan seemingly having no business cop-on to the FAI underfunding the league to the strength of junior football in the area I presume - but I don't see what TDs can really do to help an at present unviable private business.

    Bohs fans taking pop shots at the current demise of Limerick FC right now is perplexing. You may not think it but there is a very sizeable football community here that wont be able to see their local team play senior football next year. The first time since 1937. Every team in this league has had to borrow, scrounge and beg at times to keep the show going. Bohs are going well at the moment but we were going well just over two years ago. A collapse can happen to any club in this country in a short period of time. See Waterford and Cork City currently struggling. The Waterford situation in particular is quite similar to our own and i'd be fearful for them this year.

    Tell Sean Russell about "easy".
    Instead of whining about it why don't Limerick fans do something to save their club. Then again, turning up to games was too much effort for most of them.

    Keep laughing at property deals, it will help pass the time with no football 😁

    Eh this is the Irish football public you are talking about and is an issue across the board, any LoI fan should know this all too well, the FAI know it too! Bohs sell out a very restricted capacity ground and you're are behaving as if you are selling out the national stadium. Before you bite back yes Dundalk crowds should be better than what they are considering unprecedented success and we could look to Bohs great strides in rebuilding the fanbase; We face a very difficult time especially without a supporters club/trust if Peak6 decide to leave, Oriel Park is a kip, and this seasons shirt is not great etc etc. Talk about believing the hype though...football fans tend to have short memories but this is more obtuse than selective memory! I was starting to 'like' Bohs for as much as a rival fan can like any rival club, wumming or not the above is just a bit daft Marino all things considered.

    Just to make it clear I'm not interested in getting into a slagging match with you, everyone knows what happened Sean Russell was wrong amongst other things POS did, I just can't comprehend LOI supporters slagging/kicking other clubs when they're in serious trouble, All LOI clubs have list of feck ups some longer than others just because Bohs or whoever are doing ok at the moment doesn't necessarily mean trouble isn't far away, I'd honestly hate to see ANY LOI club go out of business.

    Its a pity POS dragged it out to the last minute , with a couple of months to get organised a new Limerick team could have been up and running for this season.
    Is there any word on the underage structures ? will Limerick be i the 13's 15s etc

    To be fair it's not Bohs fans taking shots, its just marino, who takes petulant shots at everyone on this forum at every opportunity presumably because it makes him feel 'big', you'll enjoy your time on here much more if you just ignore him.
    Mon the Town!

    Like I was saying don't count your chicken's before they hatch after hearing Shane Ross today. Not specifically aimed at you but there's no guarantees in Irish football

    First “petulant shot ” on here was blue blood but don’t let facts get in the way - you never did before !
    Most would enjoy their time here a lot more without your usual long winded nonsense.

    Actually my very point was WHAT are Limerick fans doing to get senior football in Limerick ? Dundalk, Cork, Bohs, Shams etc were saved by their fans getting off their backsides to save their club. Limerick appear to wait for another millionaire to ramble by.
    Letters and faux concern from local reps and/or looking for Govt money is not an option.
    The exact same will apply at Dundalk if/when PEAK6 disappear over the horizon (unless some other investor fills the void).

    What are you on about??? A Bohs fan joked

    "So, would this technically be Limerick 38 or 39?"

    To which I obviously joking replied.....
    "That's the year the club was formed, if we're back in 2020 season it'll obviously be Limerick 20 until we need a new name in a few years. If only we had sold the Market's Field even though we don't own it 🤔🤔🤔"

    Then you came in all defensive and child like with........
    "Much easier to rob players wages, abandon injured player and then fold (again). Then whine for Government / Sara Claus to clear up your mess. Sure, it’s the Limerick way."

    Sweet Jesus I'll do this simply as I can for you.....
    1st....A different Bohs fan joked (about Limerick 38 or 39)

    2nd....I joked back. (about Limerick 20 AND selling a ground we don't own)

    3rd.....YOU got your knickers in a twist AND you took the first "petulant shot" ie..........
    Much easier to rob players wages, abandon injured player and then fold (again). Then whine for Government / Sara Claus to clear up your mess. Sure, it’s the Limerick way.
    Multi-Quote This Message.
    That is what I was replying to.... what you said "First “petulant shot ” on here was blue blood"
    Is that clear enough for you now, if not maybe there's some on here who can dumb it down further for you, god my brain is starting to hurt. I remember why I stopped posting on this site ☹️☹️☹️

    Thirdly . Limerick unlike Bohs at present don't have much of a fan base, we spent almost 20 years in the IST Division then at best became a yo-yo club for the last 7 years or whatever, people got disillusioned with the club I I wouldn't blame them for drifting away. The few hardcore fans don't have the money or expertise to save the club, there's a lot of bad feeling for the club locally at present.

    It seems the majority of LOI people aren't happy that Limerick FC are gone but some childish people like to kick others when they are down but this is LOI and trouble is never far away but some forget this.
    Just the once eh ? With counting like that it's no wonder Limerick is in trouble.

    You "joke" I get "knickers in twist" because I respond in kind. Right, sure that makes complete sense 🙄

    Anyway, Cork, Bohs, Shams fans didn't have the money or expertise either, until they had to. Maybe a fans owned/run model might be more sustainable in Limerick ? Got to be better than sitting around slagging the previous owner (who at least put his own money in).

    The common factor in LOI clubs that go bust seems to be private ownership/ reliance on a particular benefactor. Community ownership doesn't pave over the many, many problems involved in running a LOI club, but it does seem to result in clubs that are a lot more sustainable.
    I'm open to correction on this, can anyone name an example of a supporter owned club completely collapsing?
    oh boy I'm not good at football forums
