    Rovers for the third time in their history are
    The Invincibles; only the third time in the history of the league this has happened ( only achieved by Rovers )

    Each time this momentous feat occurred it was during an 18 match season (17 seasons) .

    Our conceding of only 7 goals is also a new record

    Ps well done Harps and Sligo

    Pathetic from Dundalk, but fair play, Sligo. Always liked the cut of Coughlan. There's a good player there that was way underused at Cork.

    Pathetic is being generous. We have players who donít seem interested and a manager who has no discernible game plan and is very naive in team selection and substitutions. I am dreading next season if the Italian duo remain in charge.

    I assume Deegan's red card means he's suspended for Sunday now?

    Unless Derry win against Sligo in the cup I really think 4th will get Europe.

    Despite the win, Ollie will be playing this down. Will caution that there might be a chance Harps will be in the play-off.

    There was just a feeling of "Oh well" about the team performance. Oduwa has promise, but in fleeting moments. Lots of undercooked performances. The biggest problem I could see is that they kept absolutely rifling passes to each others feet, which invetiably bounced off, or were lost. They lacked composure to make simpler passes and everything was forced. McGinty did make a brilliant save from Gartland, but nonetheless, there was a feeling that they'd rather be anywhere else tonight.

    Is Filippo doing the Pro Licence? Am I right in thinking if he's not on it by the start of the season, he can't stay on as manager as the 90 days will be up? Or would Dundalk just appoint Keegan like how they appointed Gill?

    Oh my days...Unbelieveable stuff...Great for 94 minutes and we nearly threw it away. If Webster got a touch on that at the end he deserves the freedom of Donegal

    Job Done by The Invincible Rovers.
    Not so much Men Vs Boys as Men Vs Geriatrics. I'm sure half the shels team played in that rugged island team in that father ted football episode
    shels look in a bit of a mess .Morris is only starting in management but doesn't seem to know whats needed yet, only outdone in the ineptitude stakes by that harvey fu**wit in black. another officiating travesty from that individual

    Delighted that Harps stayed up- hopefully as fans we can get to go on the bus trip that never ends to ballybofey next season , covid permitting.

    Rovers finishing 22 points ahead of dundalk is ever so satisfying to see. congrats to boez and sligo on euro qualification - two good side with decent managers who appear to know what they're doing.

    Rovers Vs Boez cup final in an empty tallaght beckons, inshallah.

    Ollie Horgan reminds me of some sort of Allardyce/Pulis/Neil Warnock mash-up; always set up their teams dourly, resolutely and hard to beat, and always managing by hook or by crook to avoid relegation! But congrats to them, fighting away on limited resources, and securing another year at the top table. As a Galway fan I've experienced that last day reprieve feeling, so enjoy.

    No idea we’ve ended up in 4th. Played well for the first 5 or 6 games after the break but that’s it really. Obviously cause no one else wanted it I suppose.

    Tonight’s game was horrific. Just hate that pitch. Great goal by Coughlan and a couple of great saves by McGinty.

    Great to see Harps staying up.

    Congrats to Harps on an incredible escape, serious achievement that not many would’ve seen possible as they trailed 1–0 at home to cork not so long ago.

    Fair play to Sligo also on (more than likely) getting Europe which would’ve seemed a million miles away when football returned in August, delighted for Bucko. Wonder what Lee Power's next move with Waterford will be now

    That game put about 10 years on me,we could have scored 3 or 4 and almost threw it away right at the end,no idea how the Waterford player missed.

    The play off is a coin flip as far as I'm concerned ,Shelbourne seemed to lose the head a bit tonight from the bits I watched and it'll be a job to pick them up for the play off now.

    Well done to Sligo for getting Europe aswell,probably just about deserved it in the end but Waterford will be kicking themselves they haven't managed it.
    Irish by birth ,Harps by the grace of god.

    Waterford are cursed with regards Europe lately.

    Banned (rightly) last year. Messed up on the final day (although had they equalised, Sligo's 90th-minute second goal would have kept them in fourth place), and the Youth League has been postponed open-endedly, with Waterford still needing either Portugal or Austria to declare as their entrants the sides in the CL proper

    Players have been done for match fixing for far less than that.

    Deegan is some muppet getting himself sent off and missing the playoff, 2 nill down game over and he gets an obvious yellow when the rovers player was going nowhere.
    He was at it all night, had to laugh at Jack B pointing at him when he scored the opener.

    Great to see Harps staying up and hopefully Longford can apply the coup de grace to Shels and send them back down.
    Getting out of the first division next yeer will be tough, a resurgent Galway and Cork......3 cheers for Olllie.

    great to finish unbeaten as well, for all the talk of schedules and resting players from FG Rovers played 4 games in 8 days and won 3 drew 1.
    A good barometer of whether Dundalk can come back next season will be if they resign Oduwa, guys like him are death to a team that have aspirations.

    Very embarrassing for us. You wouldn't see a Bradley side finish 20+ points behind the eventual league winners....
