No sleep ’til the end of the season – #FM20 OS8 C2 S4 – Part 81 – Dundalk – October 2026

Welcome back to a busy, busy, busy Oriel Park for October 2026. If we beat Shamrock in the FAI Cup Semi Final I think that will move the St. Pat’s final IPD game into November, but the schedule is a bit of a madness in Ireland when you are a successful club. Firstly the normal …
