ST PAT'S refused to comment yesterday pending the court action that Bernard O'Byrne has taken against the club following his sacking from the position of CEO.
The sides are expected in the High Court tomorrow and both parties were remaining tight-lipped ahead of the meeting.
Meanwhile, the club is still in negotiations with insurance tycoon Brooks Mileson about a possible kit sponsorship deal. Mileson is the owner of Scottish Second Division high-flyers Gretna and was involved in a failed takeover of Shamrock Rovers earlier this year.
On the field, John McDonnell has renewed the contracts of Colm Foley and Darragh Maguire and is currently looking to bring in a number of new players including Shamrock Rovers winger Mark Rutherford.
