League of Ireland Premier Division 1984/1985

Select Year

After a two-year gap, senior football returned to Leeside when Cork City FC was elected to the League of Ireland. Former Chelsea and Cork Celtic hero Bobby Tambling was at the helm but his reign only lasted an unlucky 13 games.

Tony ‘Tucker’ Allen filled the breach as the club opted to import a batch of English players, most notably ex-Liverpool midfielder Terry McDermott. The gamble averted the threat of relegation to the new First Division, but brought no joy in the Cup as City fell to Drogheda United in the second round.
