    Magnificent performance away to Drogheda. Heart, bottle, grit, character, skill and courage. Disgraceful refereeing but held on with 9 men for 15 minutes for a fantastic point.

    I like what I've seen in the first two games, we try and play good football. Bit different to the Scully era!

        Was actually at the Drogheda game, ref killed us alright but we made it easy for him too. We look like a team who needs to gel but hopefully we'll be strong enough to stay up.
        It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into.

        Every plan I have is the best plan in the room. Everybody get quiet and listen to it, and everybody will win

                    I'm heading straight out from work, so currently trying to figure out what bus I get from Leeson Street that will get me to Nutley Lane.

                    My head says 46A, but my heart says the Dublin Bus website is a complete crock of Jackeen ****e.

                      Think 46a will do it, heading out there myself. Glorious victory awaits!

                          Joe O'Mahony has died.

                          ONE of the greatest soccer players to ever put on a Limerick jersey, Joe O’Mahony, has died.
                          He won the league in 1980 and the cup in 1971 and 1982 and captained Limerick against Real Madrid in the European Cup at Lansdowne Road and in the famous Bernabeau stadium.
                          He was an ever present on the Limerick team and one of the best defenders in the League of Ireland for a 20 year period.
                          Those games were a long way from Caledonian Park and Shelbourne Park when he first played with Reds United. The arrival of Eoin Hand in Limerick turned senior soccer and brought long awaited success.
                          For years Joe played alongside Al Finucane, and they were the most recognisable centre back pairing in the League of Ireland.
                          Outside football Joe was a quiet gentleman, who had time to talk to everyone. Funeral arrangements are expected later.



                          I worked with Joe many years ago on work experience in TY and again for the summer hols and he was a true gent in the office, and as I later saw, a huge boot on him for free kicks. Sad day.
                          We made a balls of it, and that's something we've got to live with: Ronan O'Gara. (losing home HC record v Leicester)

                          Look at soccer. If you get tackled, you pretend you are half dead. If you get punched in the face in rugby, you try to pretend nothing happened. (Paul O'Connell)

                            Before my time, but that 80-82 Limerick team is spoken about around the city with the same reverence as the '78 Munster team and '73 All-Ireland hurling team. Sounded like great days in the Markets Field. Would love to have been around for them.

                              RIP Joe. An absolute gent.
                              We'll engrave your name in gold, as we did in days of old.
                              Roll along lovely Axel, roll along.

                                I remember him well. In their last league match at Athlone in 1979/80, Joe stepped up and scored the equalising penalty and won Limerick the title. Late on in his career he took all the free kicks within shooting distance, and scored with many.

                                Watched him for many years at the Markets Field. He would have been delighted if he'd lived to witness the return of senior soccer there.

                                RIP.
