Sunday was a great day for Dublin on the sport front. After a less than convincing start Dublin’s Gaelic Football team overcame Offaly by a scoreline of 1-15 to 0-09. Great celebrations were had by all throughout the city and libation was had by many. After the game Dublin have in some quarters been installed as favourites to win this year’s All-Ireland. Well lets just wait and see. There’s a lot more football still to be played, but personally I think Dublin will do very well this year.

In contrast, yesterday it was announced by the management of Dublin City FC that the club is to close down with immediate effect. After playing 17 matches thus far this season Dublin City had secured a total of 15 points, these game are now to be rendered null and void the league table to be re jigged. As long term readers of Liffeyside know we have a certain fondness for Saint Patrick’s Athletic but nevertheless it is with sadness and a certain apprehension that we heard the news.
