A Second League Of Ireland Club Has Voted To Strike

A Second League Of Ireland Club Has Voted To Strike
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

Limerick FC's players have voted to strike this afternoon, throwing their game against Waterford next week into jeopardy. It comes a week after players from another Premier League club, Bray Wanderers, also voted for industrial action.

SIPTU are dealing with both clubs currently, but RTE Sport confirmed that Limerick players voted in favour of industrial action and will inform the club this week.

Yesterday PFAI general secretary Stephen McGuinness confirmed the Bray squad had gone unpaid for eight weeks and that the club had missed the FAI imposed deadline to pay players' wage. McGuinness was critical of FAI chief Fran Gavin and an interview he gave on RTE Radio last weekend.

We requested a meeting today at 5 o'clock to look for an update for either of us to supply the information that the players had been paid and what was in place to make sure they were paid until the end of the season. But unfortunately, Fran was too busy to meet today. Even the interview at the weekend with Joanne Cantwell, the players were disappointed that they heard through a radio interview that commitments had been given from the club. You would think communication would be better.


It was confirmed today that some Limerick wages had been paid but the club have been banned from signing players for the remainder of this season while Bray were also a hit with a transfer embargo as well as suspension from the IRN-BRU Scottish Challenge Cup.
