    Dont forget the possibility of Cabinteely also, Tallaght along with other spots thrown out there is they make a push for play-offs and manage to pull off a minor miracle of promotion. Tallaght is more than capable of hosting 2 'anchor' tenants!

    Cabo are an interesting one. Devlin was in the media during the week talking about what would happen if they went up. Said Stradbrook wasn't up to scratch (which it clearly isn't), and that they'd have to look at Bray, UCD or Tallaght. But they were trying to get into Bray a couple of years ago, and UCD (the college) have previously blocked other clubs (Shamrock Rovers) from playing home games there. So Cabo seem to be running out of options for a new ground.

    Cabinteely may as well fold now if they intend to become anchor tenants at Tallaght, they could maybe just about survive using it for a year but even that'd be pushing it. There's a reason Pats as a club and their fans are dead set against it.

    Don't Cabinteely have plans to develop Kilbogget Park? Was in their 5 year plan anyway.

    I can understand clubs and fans not wanting to leave their historical home area. Rovers thanks to history in general managed to both move from their traditional base and share grounds and survive bar the trouble they got in to over Tallaght development in the end ironically. Cabinteely could roll on as an amatuer type set-up, its by no means a forgone conclusion that they would go to the wall. If promoted they would in all likelhood be relegated again and go back to Stradbrook. You really really dont like the idea of Tallaght Stadium being used by other clubs RH Any time its mentioned you blow cold quickly!!

    Well firstly I wasn't wrong about Dundalk and Tallaghts availability was I? You can ask Sligo fans how right I was.
    Secondly I've no problem with Cabinteely sharing Tallaght but it would throw their business plan out the window and some and there's not a chance they'd survive multiple years of it, Rovers barely survived it and no other club would stand a chance doing anything similar nevermind a club as small as Cabo (in LOI terms).

    Yeah Cabo have plans to develop kilbogget but it is years away and dependent on council funding....it's about as close to reality as saying x random club has plans
    There isn't a hope of Cabo moving to Tallaght.
    The pitch is used by rovers most weekends for 19s etc from a pure logistics perspective but more importantly from Cabo' S viewpoint they can't get a crowd a 10 minute drive away from kilbogget in blackrock there is zero hope of people traveling out to tallafornia

    No direct bus from kilbogget to Tallaght 😁
    Think the idea was that Pats would move to Tallaght (as per FAI masterplan) Bohs/Shels at revamped Dalymount and Shams/Pats at Tallaght. Still the most likely long term outcome (even if Pats are playing hard to get).

    Cabo fans don't use the bus service, they only run buses out there so the maids, gardeners and general helpers can get home

    Cabo missed a trick not pushing for a stadium to be included in the Cherrywood development, ideal location and good timing but seems to have passed them by.

    They did push just got nowhere.
    Council put lots of requirements on the developers 're schools public areas etc, even provision of full size astro which is already built but there are no access roads so local clubs can't use them.
    I assume a new junior club will start up eventually when people start to move in.
    ....cherrywood fc ....

    The council should build a 2000 seater stadium in kilbogget with a running track around it.
    An astro pitch would accomadate seapoint RFC , Cabo, Cabo athletics club and some GAA crowd that play there as well.
    If they provide comfortable padded heated seats with access to a bar (the rugger boys already have one....typically ! The locals will give it a try

    that "some GAA crowd" were in last years all-Ireland ladies club final!
    there are plans to develop the park but cant see a stadium being part of the plan. too much pressure on space for the existing requirements as it is.

    That's a strategy that would see the league essentially end up with just 2 of those 4 teams surviving/competing in the long term.

    LOI club struggle to get crowds as it is. Putting two of them together in the exact same place in Dublin means they'd be competing for the same local support as well.

    It's just typical FAI to come up with something like this, as they don't give a sh!te about the league..

    100% correct , whichever of the two clubs was more successful would take any new "floating support" and Corporate sponsorship and bleed the other one dry.
    Although maybe the FAI have a cunning plan for increasing average attendances Shelhiams V Shamrock Athletic ??

    Would be a loss alright to lose the two lesser clubs but Bohs and Pats would just have to carry on 😎
