Aug 07 2015
The Extratime.ie Sportscast - Episode 47 - This week’s Extratime.ie Sportscast was something a bit different. We invited a couple of special guests into our studio for a panel discussion looking at the current structures in the League of Ireland. Pat Devlin, Director of Football at UCD, and John O’Sullivan, former Cork City FC Chairman and ex-CEO at Athlone Town and Limerick FC, joined Sportscast host Gareth O’Reilly in studio along with Extratime.ie reporter and author of Tallaght Time, Macdara Ferris. Their wide ranging chat focussed on what is being run well in the league, as well as looking at what can be done to improve football in Ireland. The level of coaching, club facilities and marketing of the league were discussed. Also, on the weekend that the new football season kicked off for the inaugural national under 17 league in Ireland, our panellists discussed the underage set ups at League of Ireland clubs and the development of players in Ireland.
