League of Ireland First Division 2010

Select Year

Roddy Collins was appointed manager before the start of the 2010 season. Tom Coughlan resigned as chairman but continued his ownership of the holding company. The club’s presence in the Premier Division was put at risk due to impending high court proceedings and rising debts to the Revenue Ultimately the club failed to gain this licence, meaning a deal on new ownership could not be secured, and the courts enforced a winding-up order on Cork City Investment FC Limited.

Cork City Football Club was founded by the fans in the immediate aftermath of the winding up and carried on as Cork’s sole representative in the League of Ireland. The club entered the first division of the League of Ireland playing under the name of Cork City FORAS Co-op after FORAS successfully applied for a licence. Tommy Dunne was appointed manager and set about putting a squad together, only 10 days prior to the first game of the season. The club travelled to face the eventual winners of the First Division, Derry City, in the opening game, with a Davin O’Neill goal securing a 1-1 draw.

In June the club purchased the rights to the name Cork City Football Club, with Chairman John O’Sullivan saying: “This is a development with which we are all absolutely delighted. A significant amount of work and care went into the process, and we would like to recognise the contribution of Seán Ó’Conaill and our solicitor Michael O’Dowd of O’Hanlon O’Dowd Solicitors [www.ohod.ie]. We would also like to express our appreciation to the team at Moore Stephens Nathans; the decision to allow Cork City FC to continue playing at underage level allows us to express with absolute certainty that Cork City FC has never stopped, not for a second.”

In Cork City’s first season as a supporter-owned club, a late run of games which saw the club win 10 out of 12 league games between July and September was not enough to mount a sustained promotion challenge, as crucial results against promotion rivals went against the club. The club eventually finished the season in sixth place.

Note 1: After Cork City’s holding company was liquidated following the 2009 Premier Division season, the supporters’ trust, FORAS, re-entered the club in the First Division.
Note 2: Salthill Devon retained their place in the league after winning the promotion/relegation play-off.
