A UEFA Cup exit against Slavia Prague was quickly overcome and the championship success of ’93 looked as if it might be repeated before the season rapidly turned sour, and Richardson resigned a week before Christmas with the team at the top of the table and into the League Cup final. Bishopstown was virtually unplayable, games were switched to Cobh, Turners Cross and even one enforced trip to Tolka Park. O’Mahony was recalled but the title challenge collapsed and neither Munster or League Cup successes could ease the sadness of seeing a club on the verge of self-destruction.
Note 1: Derry City qualified for the 1995–96 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup after winning the 1994–95 FAI Cup final.
