    It's a shame they are gone from the League, Great town for a weekender. Haven't heard much about them since they left the league.

    I heard they were entering a team into the U-20 League which is a good sign as I think its only supposed to be Eircom League Clubs this season.

    I emaield Jim Rhatigan back in january about gettign a copy ofn his book and some Kilkenny City merchandise.

    He emailed me back around March/April because he'd been ill. He said the club is looking to rebuild again in intermediate football before making a return to the EL.

    I think they do have some KCFC merchandise left if anyone fancies any. The money would help the club, and you'd be picking-up a bit of Irish footballing history.

    I already have a scarf, I'd probably splash out for a reasonably priced jersey to go with my Dublin City one.

    Glad to hear it. No viability in the A Championship yet I take it?

    Kilkenny were allowed keep their EL status so they can still enter but the likes of Kerry League and Castlebar Celtic cant!

    100%, had a brilliant weekend there last November with Harps, we were kicked out of Matt the Millars for singing too loud but still great craic.

    They built a fine new stand down there, its a pity the town couldn't get behind the team.

    The only bit of City merchandise you'd be likely to get is either a scarf, a pin or a tie. Thats all the merchandise the club has has been selling for about the past 3 years. They haven't sold a replica jersey since the 2004 season! Last years kit was given to a local junior team who will essentially be City's feeder club for the U-20 team, so there's no chance of getting your hands on a jersey.

    There was what looked suspiciously like a few replica shirts on hangers on the shelves in the 'shop' against Harps last year I thought?

    That's very disappointing to hear. One of the strengths of the old set-up was that it provided plenty of scope for players to find their way into senior football from areas that may otherwise have missed out. Plenty of Kerry players in particular had spells in the EL proper with various Munster clubs (particularly Limerick!). Ball dropped by FAI.

    Agreed. Killkenny are appartenly the only non-League club in the U-20's set up this season. Technically they are still classified as a League of Ireland club so the FAI have allowed them enter a team. Whether they decide to or not is a different situation.

    Thinking about it I suppose the FAI/eL are hoping that the likes of Kerry, Mullingar, Castlebar, UL, Lifford etc will enter the A League instead. Still think it's a bit needless tbh (kicking the non eL clubs out of the U-20 League, not the A Championship!)

    And while I wish Kilkenny City all the goodwill in the world it's farcicial that they've still classified as an eL side.

    Hi, Dar. It's Nick from Moscow, some months ago I wrote to you about KCFC. I wonder if there are any positive news.
    Could you please drop me a line at bb35@mail.ru ?
    Thanks.
