    Dundalk won loi in 1995 within 4 years they were relegated. Shels won their last loi in 06 and were relegated straight away! Drogheda as mentioned in 07 and relegated in a few years (cant remember year in which they went down) and now Cork City.

    Shels don't really count as they effectively went broke and were refused a licence. Bit different to what happened Cork, which is surely more dramatic than Drogheda/Dundalk. 9 goals in a (half) season is remarkable.

    Waterford beat Dundalk today in the latest "We don't want Europe - you take it" match. Dundalk with 7 changes from Thursday.

    Means Bohs are confirmed in second, and Pats would draw level with Dundalk if they win their next two matches, away to Harps and home to Dundalk. Though "win your next two matches" isn't really something most of the teams in the league seem capable of doing. So Dundalk still favourites for third (though their European spot would have an asterisk beside it in that case, I'm sure)

    could be an exciting last day depending on results between now and then.
    Dundalk, sligo, pats possibly Derry and maybe even HARPS going for European place.
    More likely Dundalk need a point against Sligo (who could qualify for Europe themselves) and waterford and Pats best placed to take the 4th spot.
    Harps have a squeek of avoiding the playoff at shels expense who can expect Rovers to return the facvour harps did us last night with a win in tolka

    I hope FG got the contract off Bill

    Harps can only finish fifth, so they're definitely out of Europe (except via the Cup)

    Edit - Shels out of the European race as well, so it's five teams going for two spots (if we assume the Cup winners will be top three)

    I'd love it if there were a big celebration from someone finishing fourth and thinking they've got Europe and something mad happens and either Harps or Athlone win the cup.

    Your right Stu, i was looking at it last night, Waterford getting 3 points today made it impossible (very unlikely anyway i guess) Pats could turn around waht has been a poor season by qualifying for europe and on the other hand could be relegated by losing the playoff..

    I certainly will be supporting Harps to win the Cup if they overcome Rovers.
    Preferably for them to do it against boez in the final. What a victory that would be. A real nasty bad tempered game with both sides reduced to 9😁😁.

    With Daryl Murphy back playing from the start his first start for Waterford since 05 season I would tip them to clinch European qualification for first time since 1986. They would have being in Europe in 04 had they held on against us!

    Derry have announced their game with rovers won’t be going ahead due to a positive covid test for 1 player and 1 member of the back room staff. This is days after the FAI said all games must go ahead. Interesting to see if they uphold the rules and award rovers a 3-0 win if Derry are unwilling to play

    I was thinking the exact same thing. If new rules are in then Derry should play the game.

    Not having Covid related postponement rules when the league restarted is looking a terrible oversight at this point, how could no one have though of it??
    Irish by birth ,Harps by the grace of god.
