Irish Teams In Europe: Papering Over The Cracks

“Cracks are easy to paper over, sometimes, but at the moment the Airtricity League feels like a massive crack in the tectonic plate surface of Irish football. The magma of Monaghan United burst out and left the league two weeks ago, and now there’s more rumbling coming out of Dundalk. The paper is European football. Last season saw Shamrock Rovers make history by becoming the first Irish men’s team to make the group stages of a European competition. The expectation is that this year, some other Irish sides will be able to provide a welcome distraction from the perilous state the league is in.” In Bed With Maradona
