Cabinteely v Limerick

7.45pm  15 October 2016

League of Ireland, Division One
Cabinteely 0 Limerick 1 (att 387)

Looking on from across the Irish Sea I was surprised when south Dublin side Cabinteely FC were added to the League of Ireland's second tier. Dublin isn't short of league clubs, and several have disappeared in recent years.

But Cabinteely at least finished their second season one place off the bottom, despite losing their final league game at home to runaway champions Limerick. With better finishing Cabinteely might have won the game, but the visitors netted the only goal of a low-key match after 65 minutes.

Cabinteely's League of Ireland games are played at Blackrock College rugby ground. It's fairly basic for a national league venue, with no cover or seats for spectators (unless you bag one of the window tables in the bar behind the goal).

There's a few steps of open terracing running along one side of the pitch, but other than the clubhouse behind one goal the rest of the ground consists of the flat standing areas.
