    They must surely.
    If so, the club and player would know he's due a suspension. When he doesn't appear on the list, would you not check with the FAI if they're made a mistake rather than risk losing the points?

    In saying that, the onus is still on the FAI.

    Seems in this case there is no dispute that he should’ve been suspended but the issue is what was communicated to Sligo and when.

    I’d guess if an updated list was sent before the game that had him suspended then Sligo may not have much comeback.
    I don't know what system is used, but I'm sure if its an automated/automatic electronic system Sligo would have been notified in good time prior to the game. On the other hand if the same system didn't notify and allowed a player to be named on an electronic team sheet that would indicate a fault in the system which would need addressed urgently. This COULD impact the outcome of the league and or a place in Europe and a financial loss.
    Wonder I Sligo loose the points and miss Europe by the point lost would they have a case for compo?

    Clubs do keep tallies but the player is not suspended until the notification comes.

    This could be a curse handed on to Sligo from Motherwell! I was listening to BBC Radio Scotland, prior to the Motherwell v Sligo Rovers clash and all the talk was about how Motherwell had been handed a loss in a game they played for fielding an illegal player. I believe it was the group stages of their league cup. The confusion came about because the player had been carded in a different competition and the club were not aware or were confused that the rule covered both competitions. In addition a second club got caught the same way in the same competition. Off hand I don't remember who the 2nd club was. So no Ireland is not unique in having unclear communicatiobs between clubs and governing F.A.

    McDonnell served his suspension for the Drogheda game obviously there was some mix up along the lines and it seems he should of missed out on the rearranged Dundalk fixture.

    The suspensions usually state it’s for the week beginning on the Monday, so are you saying that he didn’t play in the game on the Saturday instead of the preceding Monday?

    Far from it! I recall Real Madrid getting thrown out of the Spanish cup in 2015 after bringing on a player that was due to serve a suspension that carried over from the previous season but claim they weren’t notified by the Spanish FA before the fixture

    Yes obviously communications got muddled some where but you can see from the tweet here he was left out for Drogheda game last Saturday night due to suspension.

    Unless Sligo didn't receive communication that he was suspended at all (which seems unlikely) or received communication to explicitly see he wasn't suspended for the Dundalk game but is for the Drogs game, unlike every other suspension starting from a Monday, it's hard to see how they can avoid the loss of the game.

    (For the record I don't want the 3 points, but would love to know the details of Sligo's argument here)

    Mad idea but go with me on this... have the media notification and the one to clubs be the same information.

    Its probably naïve to make any presumptions on FAI stuff but surely there is a definitive list of suspensions published at a weeks beginning and that is the only list clubs should use. Anything else is provisional and could change maybe? While the FAI could or should inform individual clubs of player suspended for a given game, the club should also confirm things if they know a suspension is pending. Didnt this notification method initially happen due to clubs trying to pick game to have players serve their suspension against supposedly weaker sides or even in other competitions eg LSC and it was put a stop to. The ref should also have the up to date list, scan the team sheets and flag up a problem - more important than clashing colours on the sleeve of a jersey and its not as if there is likely to be a clatter of suspend players to go through, id guess 2 or 3 on average.

    I wouldnt be jumping up and down looking for the 3 points but Id not be as generous as seand above as if it gets us over the line and in to Europe i'd take it. We've been denied possible promotion ourselves with another side being deducted points and then getting the back with a game or 2 left so as long as a decision is done and dusted either way.

    Tough one for Sligo and from a selfish point of view makes it a lot harder for Pat's to get Third
