      Great to have the first home game televised, looking forward to sitting down and watching it Sunday evening now.

      The fixture list isn't kind to us Dublin based folk. The Blues seem to be playing all the Dublin teams at home first. 17th May in the Belfield Bowl against UCD looks to be the first time I'll get to see them this season. Larry, I'll exepct you to be in attendance.

      Anyway, great to see Premier Division football back in Limerick again, it's been far too long. Might be a struggle this season but hopefully they can consolidate and push on next year. I'd also urge as many Limerick based posters as possible to get to TP on Sunday, and throughout the season. There are some extremely hard working people in the Club and it's taken great effort to get where they are now. Senior football gets very little attention in the city so any extra bit of support this year will be invaluable.

      If you're tired of the bloated and glitzy premiership a bit of LOI is the perfect remedy!

            Lads, if the cork thread is anything to go by, get off of this one.... you are wrecking Red 49's chance at easily being able to count his posts....
            He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

                  I'll be watching this thread. Used to go to the Markets Field with a close friend as a teenager - Limerick were pretty average back then, but with some useful and interesting players - Des Kennedy, Tony Meaney, Paddy Shortt, Shay Doyle, Joe O'Mahony, Kevin Fitz, and so on.

                  Great atmosphere on FAI Cup days. The popular side was sometimes more fun, because you could get a bit closer to the players, despite the dog track. But is was dangerous there - the rusty corrugated roof collapsed one Sunday during a match - no one hurt, and the game never even stopped.

                  I drifted away after that, but when they go back to the "Markets", I'll definitely have a look.

                  Best of luck to Pat O'Sullivan, Stuart Taylor and the players for the new season in the top flight.

                        God that makes me feel my age. Was at that game as a nipper. Think we lost the game in Madrid 5-1

                          It's amazing how the goals scored against Madrid in the first round and the final were by Kennedy's. Des and Alan.
                          We'll engrave your name in gold, as we did in days of old.
                          Roll along lovely Axel, roll along.
