Dundalk Have Made A Staggering Amount Of Money For Tonight's Victory Alone

Dundalk Have Made A Staggering Amount Of Money For Tonight's Victory Alone
By Gavan Casey

Yeeoooowwww! A sensational Dundalk performance has seen the Irish champions become the first League of Ireland club to win a game in a major European tournament.

Ciaran Kilduff's finish from close range was enough for the hosts against Maccabi Tel Aviv, who leave Tallaght Stadium with four points from their opening two Europa League fixtures. It's a truly incredible achievement.

As you're probably aware, when the Louth club reached the Europa League group stages following progression from the Champions League third round qualifiers, they guaranteed themselves a seismic amount of cash.

Tonight's victory will see UEFA write the Lillywhites a cheque for €360,000 (to add to the €120,000 they received for a 1-1 draw in Alkmaar). To put that into perspective, tonight's result sees the club earn more than three times what they received for winning the League of Ireland last season.

Ironically, it also means that tonight's victory has earned Dundalk exactly one John Delaney salary.
