Episode 1698: League of Ireland Preview – New FAI, New League? Frances’ TV Guide To The Sporting Weekend
It’s been a pretty horrendous 12 months for the FAI, but from the rubble of the John Delaney era, is there a chance that the League of Ireland could actually enhance it’s position?
If it’s put front and centre of the ‘new’ FAI, then maybe there’s hope yet for domestic football. David Sneyd, and film-maker Kevin Brannigan, join us in studio to look ahead to the new season, speculate on the league’s place in the FAI’s priorities, and Eoin tries to view the new season without hoops-tinted glasses.
Thanks to Eddie Gormley, Brendan Clarke, Keith Fahey, Stephen McGuinness, John Caulfield, Steve Williams, Catherine O’Mahony and, of course, Pat Dolan, for sharing their memories for this. @stpatsfc https://t.co/fSlXAVeBtN
