Limerick 37 V St Patrick's Athletic

  • Fri, Jun 12, 2009 @ 14:54

THE club’s financial situation is so perilous that this could be Limerick’s last cup game and the long list of players unavailable due to injuries or suspension is probably not uppermost in manager Pat Scully’s mind.

Brian Collopy, Paul Danaher, John Tierney and Tommy Barrett will watch from the, er, stand as Limerick attempt to spring a surprise on the Dubliners.

St Patrick’s Athletic boss Jeff Kenna said at the start of the season that the cup was an attainable target and so, given his team’s league form, he could do with a place in the next round. “We had a great win last Friday,” he said, “and the cup is high on our priorities this year but they’re at home and should have a good crowd behind them so we will be treating them with respect.”
