The ambition of having the Markets Field Stadium once again retaking its place in the hearts and minds of Limerick People everywhere has come a step closer with the publication of the tender documents for the stadium redevelopment on the Etenders website. With a pristine playing surface now becoming well established, the next step will see contractors appointed and onsite in the near future. The plan to have Limerick FC start the new SSE Airtricity season in the ground that witnessed Limerick Soccer win the League and Cup in the early 1980′s is very much on track.

The stadium which has in the past played host to GAA Munster Championship Finals, the first Munster vs All Blacks Rugby match in 1905, Cycle Races, Garda Sports Days and which was of course the ground where the “Garryowen” was first used during the establshment years of the now Dooradoyle based club, will shortly re-echo to the unique humour that senior soccer in the Markets Field evokes.

With memories of the “Poplar” side,” Ballhoppers Corner” and a newly refurbished Stand Side it will not be long  before Limerick City Centre  will once again regain its own sporting landmark.

April 23rd 2014 Battle of Clontarf Gandelow Races, Dublin

Click on individual photos for enlarged view and captions

The Ilen school’s fleet of Gandelows, crews and builders gently entered the River Liffey on the morning of April 23rd. Their arrival was not a spontaneous one but one that emerged from a conglomeration of elements, some stretching back a thousand historical years.

The myth that is the Battle of Clontarf draws as much historical speculation as it does erudition, but for the Ilen School and its builders and boatmen it was a celebration of an every present past and the unchanging rhythms of our great rivers.

It was a joyous waterborne day, a day on which the Ilen School renewed old and made new friendships.

Another chapter in the illustrious history of  The Markets Field began today as Irelands Soccer Manager Martin O’Neill visited the ground and gave the new playing surface a “run out”. Expressing his delight that the historic ground was soon to become active once again he was loud in his praise of everyone associated with the tremendous effort.

After being briefed on the development plan for the ground he presented match tickets to underage players and watched a skills demonstration.
