    It’s actually 21 defeats in a row.

    Also Galway United have never finished above Rovers in the league in our history. Rovers were Champions in seasons we finished 2nd and 3rd and even when they were relegated we were in Division 1 and finished below them! Add to that, after beating Bohs last weekend, Rovers are the only side our Women’s team have failed to beat!

    Waterford are the only Premier Division side we have a winning record against and we have a desperate away record against some teams, particularly Sligo and Dundalk.

    More recently Longford have proved a thorn in our side, being the only team to beat us in the league last season. They also beat us on the opening day of the 2014 season, our return to LoI.
    I phoned the speaking clock to hear a voice speak, it said - "At the tone you will be very much alone"

    Been to Dundalk about 7 times, seen us score once. Since beating UCD in a playoff in 2015 I've seen us fail miserably there at least 6 times. Usually they have a man sent off to make it worse. Athlone is a new one for misery. 3 awful defeats there when we were favourites. Used to be Derry but our recent record isn't as bad as it was

    On the bogey teams, Drogheda and Cork were ours. Drogheda probably still are, along with Sligo away. Longford back in the day, and UCD at home had a cracking record against us.
    I'm pretty sure every game we've ever played against Derry finished 1-1 with Denis Behan scoring for us.

    Ah yeah, forgot about all those 1-1 draws. We really should have signed Behan just to stop him scoring against us.
    Have you ever won the treble?

    Bray seemed to be a bit of a bogey team for Harps for a long time but not as much last few years, UCD would probably be one now and of course Derry although our record against them was relatively decent during the Ollie years

    I think Dalymount has always felt like a happy hunting ground, even ignoring those big streaks we seem to do ok there. Even when Pat the rat was in charge there I think bohs can point to the cup final, on penalties, but few enough other wins. I think their purple patch against us was early noughties.
