    Finn Harps is a one off payment of €317.50 for a share in the club, which has proven a bit of a disaster in recent seasons. Club had looked into a membership structure, but it would add a whole legal quagmire to the 500 or so people who already have a lifetime share in the club.

    €120, €60 for unwaged and OAPs.

    Ha that reminds me I once bought a share in Limerick FC about 10 years ago that I'd completely forgotten about, I can't even remember what that was about I just thought of it as a donation to the club so I guess we were sort of fan owned at some stage, with all the drama over the years it's so hard to differentiate between reality/imagination/hope it's all becoming a bit of a blur

    From Frankie Daly's Facebook:

    Limerick Senior Soccer Statement- More to follow:

    A new group has been formed to save guard Senior Football in Limerick and the Mid west. The group have held meetings with the FAI and they have been very positive.
    We now will apply to enter sides in the Airtricity underage League as “Limerick United”.
    The ladies will apply for Senior Ladies and u17 League of Ireland.
    The club intention is to return to Senior League of Ireland in 2021.

    There was. A league and a cup were won under that name.

    From 1979 to 1983, I think.

    You might be able to change the organisation's constitution and memorandum of association to have more than one class of shareholding.

    It is a wonder nobody has brought this up, but do Limerick now have grounds to sue the FAI, if there is any money left, over the Limerick v Barcalona thing?

    That is if there is an entity exits who were harmed by this...

    Would have thought it's too far back in the past now to sue over. 6 years is the usual limit.

    There is no statue of limitations generally speaking but the plantiffs would have show good reasons for delay in order for the case to be heard, such action at this stage would probably be seen as vexatious or opportunistic. Anyways you can't get feathers off a frog and the FAI could well be gone before the lawyers get their wigs on.

    There's a whole detailed act on statute of limitations? There's no statute of limitations for indictable offences (says Wiki), but that doesn't apply here. Breach of contract is maybe the nearest to what happened, and that has a 6-year statute of limitations. After six years, documentation can be legally destroyed, and obviously it makes it harder to bring a fair hearing if one side has legitimately destroyed documentation.

    Both sides came to an agreement of some kind then, which probably included an agreement not to take any further legal action.

    A matter for CAS, maybe? If the agreement was some form of contract it may not have been legally enforceable if the FAI failed to disclose information, negotiated in bad faith, or pressurised Limerick to sign. The only winners would be the lawyers, though, so it's academic I suppose.
    Hello, hello? What's going on? What's all this shouting, we'll have no trouble here!
