    I went to Ireland straight after the match on sat.. stayed in Dundalk. I know a lot of boys from there who a massive Dundalk fans. Met these lads in a few year ago when tarn played them in a friendly. Since then we have gone over to watch them and they come over to watch us. Clicked straight away, and they all love our town as we do theirs. I went to their FAI Cup final on Sunday against Cork at the Aviva Stadium.. never been with so many of them, but it was their cup final. And one thing I will say about every single one of them... they have so much love and passion for their club it’s brilliant to see. I know we all have the love and passion for our club but to show it like they so is something different... their season has now finished. A few of them will be over a few times for some more of our matches.. think Donny and Portsmouth are their next.. if any of you get to meet them please give them a warm tarn welcome... they are really good lads and love our town.. I will post a flag we had made on another thread or below.

    Good stuff Granty. Spent most of my time further North around Belfast and Magerhafelt, but had a cracking few years. Absolutely sports nutty - and good to hear a few of them following the reds! Majority I met were Liverpool, Man U or Celtic. didnt manage to convert a single one to follow us.

    I'll make a point of trying to get up there to watch them next season. Been to Cork and Shamrock Rovers so far.
    Dundalk are starting to get untouchable in Ireland at the moment. Cash from European qualification 6 or 7 years in a row makes a huge difference in the LOI.

    They have now also been taken over by a billionaire.. they have qualified for the champions league without all the qualifying stages too. Would be good to get to an away champions league match with them

    Great to hear that Granty and if I see them I’ll welcome them no probs.
