League of Ireland Premier Division 1996-1997

Select Year

A year of consolidation after the Bishopstown nightmare ended with a surprise Intertoto Cup qualification. After a disastrous start a late run was rewarded when City finished fourth. Along the way the team claimed a League Cup final place, but unexpectedly lost on aggregate to First Division Galway United. Crowds began to increase, and the Munster Cup was recaptured, but most importantly a lot of vital repair work was undertaken and the club appeared a lot stronger than 12 months earlier.

Note 1: Shelbourne qualified for the 1997–98 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup after winning the 1996–97 FAI Cup final.
