    Presume it’s because Ireland are playing on the 26th…
    Irish by birth ,Harps by the grace of god.

    Why should that realistically affect the LOI's top tier though ? It's not like we're contributing starting players to the national team.

    It's to do with the amount of underage Internationals around the league now too

    Most of the recent international match weekends saw some league fixtures postponed due to international callups (including U21 callups for Ireland and NI). So it kind of makes sense to me.

    In a change to the usual schedule, the league will now stop during the international windows in March and September, with the mid-season break also coinciding with the June window.

    Some LOI fans might like to watch or attend the game too plus, as someone else said, underage callups.

    The game on the 26th is at home on a Saturday. Nne of the ten Premier Division clubs schedule their home fixtures on a Friday night, so would have had no impact whatsoever on their supporters attending a game in Dublin at 5pm the next day.

    It's also worth noting that the First Division has a full schedule of games that weekend. Presumably their fans don't want to attend or watch Ireland matches

    Well I wouldn't skip a First Division game to watch Ireland so maybe that is a factor.
