    Its a strange one: Personally I prefer non Dublin clubs but there aren't exactly loads of applicants so if they lads are a viable club I'm happy enough. In saying that I do have some concerns about how they have basically appeared overnight and if even half the rumors have half truth in them its not something i see last more than a decade

    A decade is generous. I'd give them five years tops. Happy to be proven wrong.

    I'm still not convinced they'll get a license though, as I'm working on the assumption that one Limerick team will definitely be admitted and that they'll replace Rovers B. Though they could of course keep Rovers in and admit two new teams. I just think the IrIsh Sea proposal is too much of a leap in the dark for the FAI at a time when they can't risk any further damage to their reputation (and by extension, the league). Delaney would've loved the idea though

    Does anyone happen to have a decent copy of the previous logo that these people were using for the club ? The one with Molly Malone on.

    Thanks.

    I think that was a joke, wasn't it? It was on the @DublinCountyFC Twitter if so, which has been suspended.

    Edit - is it not on the previous page of this thread?

    There is something about that first sentence that is pure LoI/FAI - in equal parts amusing and despairing!

    Is that a St Brigid's Cross on the crest? Maybe they are hoping to appeal to Kildare and Louth GAA fans too.

    It would seem there is yet another twitter account.
    It seems far too incompetent to be real, but nowhere near funny enough to be a joke
    oh boy I'm not good at football forums

    I would agree with this assessment - but he fact that the dope who's supposedly doing their PR doesn't even follow the account is a bit of a giveaway

    for what it's worth, this account purportedly announced the signing of an actual player (Lido Lotefa of Dundalk , who had been linked with Waterford)

    None of the twitter accounts that popped up in their name has come across as particularly competent so far.

    Would wager it's the same lad who had the other account suspended. Satirical enough to believe, or at least make people question whether or not it's real. I think it's great.

    That's another parody account.

    I don't think they'd be training on Portmarmock Beach or thanking Bertie Ahern for his support

    They've more parody social media accounts than players at this stage.

    Well they say the GAA is considering splitting Dublin into two counties. We're just ahead of them on that.
