    Treaty United

    Is seeking to apply for a First Division license for next season: https://www.limerickleader.ie/news/s...n-licence.html

    WNL team has played away this year, lost a cup semi-final at the weekend, and underage sides were in place. Still, seems a bit risky to try and enter the league now, with things the way they are and the very real possibility of not having any fans. But they seem to think they have the Market's Field.

    I'm not sure what the status is of the company behind the other Limerick team, who got legal with Treaty when it was first announced. I presume it hasn't gone away entirely (except on foot!).

    Yola United in Wexford talking about entering too.

    Were Treaty an existing side before this year? With all due respect to the guys behind both applications, the history of made-up clubs joining the league is pretty poor, and more evidence of the need for a proper pyramid structure to bring clubs through naturally instead.

    Rovers applied to join the league before Limerick went bust, they didnt spend the money on a second team just to make the numbers even, i expect them to go again next year.
    Who are this other wexford crowd? all due respect to wexford who are a nice bunch but the crowds there hardly justify a second team

    I don’t know a lot about the people behind this Treaty United entity but would be interested to see if most Limerick FC fans on here will support them now if they get a licence?

    If they’re the only show in town then I suppose it’s a no brainer. Break out the popcorn, Crazy Pat is surely about to release a statement of his own

    Get both the Wexford and Limerick teams in. Ten team league.
    Is Pats idea of a B team dead in the water?

    Rovers II are only in for one season I had thought? That was the deal with the FD clubs to allow them in, or at least that was my understanding of it.

    Treaty United will even out the numbers again so Rovers will be back to one team.

    Those efforts would be better placed in looking for the re-formation of a reserve league.

    Id guess that it would be at the moment. AFAIK that was bucko’s ambition. How much would a B team cost to field ?

    In theory yes but one year on some of the biggest whingers at the time probably realize that the world didn't fall in Jack Byrne and Ronan Finn didn't turn up to terrorize Cabo or Bray so i expect it to continue.
    Ironically two of the biggest whingers at the time were Drogs and Longford who both may be in the Premier next year.

    That would be a 12 team league.

    St Francis seem to have expressed their interest as well.

    Crazy stuff.

    The deadline is today and there are 3 names in the hat (barring an 1tth hour application by someone like Aranmore United, backed up by a world class DVD and plans for a 10,000 seater stadium on the exposed side of the island. #GLITW). Of those names, you'd have to put Treaty United (a.k.a Limerick Something) as strong favourites. St Francis will probably be told to work on their proposal and come back again in future. And Yola will hopefully be told to sort something out with Wexford FC (and to come up with a better name).

  15. Thanks From:

    Are St Francis aligned to any LOI clubs for their underage set up currently? I assume that playing in the national leagues at those levels is the only reason they want to enter.

    don't mention the war:


    "As models dressed as St Francis and St Patrick arrived at the City West Hotel in a helicopter, Dolan was bullish about the venture. "This is probably the most exciting concept that we have seen in Irish football for a long time," said Dolan."

    Suggestions that Carlow/Kilkenny have put in an application now too.

    There is no reason why Rovers B should go. Whats wrong with having a 12 team 1st division.

    in the unlikely event that there are more than 20 successful licencing applications, who would decide who is let in and how?

    Presumably, whatever about the formalities, an attempt would be made to do it on a consensual basis between the FAI and the clubs. But would that involve all 19 existing clubs, or just the First Divisions ones, or some representative combination?

    Could be a means of re-litigating the argument over Rovers II

    Just adds more dead rubber with no threat of relegation.
