    Looking forward to the trip to Buncrana, but I'd have been up either way.

    We're playing Derry away on the 1st of July and I was hoping for a trip to a new venue but I suppose that's unlikely now.

    I was there a couple of times for games, I can confirm there was never a crowd (or maybe it was just Limerick are a lousy draw). I do seem to remember both Carlow and Tralee made enquiries about stepping up to the First Division when the A Championship ended only to pretty much be told not to bother, that only Cobh were going to be taken in.
    The ball is round and has many surprises.

    And if Harps moved away from the Finn Valley area, it would be a bit strange to continue calling the club Finn Harps, being no longer anywhere near the Finn river.
    LK Harps?

    Tralee applied for league status but they had zero money behind them. When you see how other clubs get theirs, just think how awful the application must be for Tralee not to be approved. No point simply admitting clubs if they're going to fold in the first year

    We'd all love to see new clubs in the league but there simply isn't the appetite for it at any junior/intermediate club

    That's faulty logic imo. There are all sorts of reasons clubs can be denied. Some of them are legitimate, some are not.

    The only clubs denied have been Cobh, Galway and Tralee. All down to money

    Can anyone answer this question? Genuine question.

    Does Gerry Matthews or Dundalk Football Club Limited (CRO 438422) hold the lease to OP?

    Depending on the answer there may be a way to resolve this.

    As I understand it, it is Dundalk Football Club Limited.

    Ok, IF that's the case, here goes.

    The old company, ie Gerry & Carol Matthews' company is listed for strike off by the CRO. If the company is struck off, in due course, it no longer exists in the legal sense. One consequence of being struck off the register is that the assets of the company are vested in the Minister for Finance (I'm retired and not up to date, but that was the case under the old Companies Acts. Some young gun out there will be able to advise on the new Companies Act 2014). Now one of the assets of the company is the lease to OP, on the assumption that its in the name of the company. Another would be the YDC. But going on earlier posts the Club have no interest in this. We'll see!

    The lease is of prime importance to the Club.

    So if the company is struck off (ie GM & CM fail to file outstanding returns) Baldy Noonan or some other character can move to sequestrate the lease and ............ GM & CM can of course retrospectively restore the company to the register but why let it be struck off in the first place.

    So if the company is struck off then all the Lilly Whites, family members, friends etc start a big political campaign to have the Minister do his job ie get the lease to OP.

    With the possibility of a general election on the horizon or in a year or two I'm sure at least one politician in Louth/Dundalk would be more than happy to take up the cudgels on behalf of the 'hardworking, plain people of Dundalk who are extremely proud of their town and club' without the thought that there maybe a quota in the number of signatures, emails, social media comments that could be generated. The first rule of politics is get elected and the second rule is get re-elected. I'm sure the person who sorts out the lease to OP will be popular with the supporters, at least for a while.

    The above may sound long winded but the reality is that the club needs to sort out a long term solution regarding OP, it's a relatively cheap route given the internet and social media and if you can start a political campaign and if there's the possibility of enough votes in it then the politicians will pile in and do your work for you. After all, votes is the only currency they value. Well apart from their, salaries, expenses, pensions............

    It appears that this is the main strategy being followed by the club - wait and hope that the GM company gets struck off / goes broke. This high stakes brinkmanship game is depending on this to happen before the pitch fails its annual test.

    If it happens the other way around, there will be some fallout

    Derry City council staff have been told that they'll be moved out of the Brandywell at the end of the first week of July.

    In that case, Dundalk at home on 1st July will be the last match at the Brandywell.
    Longford on 15th July will be the first at Maginn Park.

    Still no word on who the contractor is, mind.

    Bit far out but do you reckon ye will reverse the league cup semi or will it be on in buncrana?

    And if it's on in buncrana would there be more chance of a daytime kick off?

    Thinkin of making a long weekend of it

    Nah, it'll be held in Buncrana just.

    I'd imagine an afternoon kick off would get a better crowd. Presumably Limerick would request that too, so it's probably the most likely option. If I find out for definite, I'll let you know.

    Latest on new stand in Tallaght:
    http://www.intallaght.ie/oconnor-cal...stadium-stand/

    Also noticed at the Ireland match in Turners Cross that they'd taken a few rows of seats out behind the goal of the St Anne's stand, any reason for this?
