League of Ireland Premier Division 1998-1999

Select Year

A home win against CSKA Kyiv augured well and so it proved. The best campaign for years saw an eight-game winning start to the league and a record 70 points accumulated from 33 matches. Incredibly, City had to accept runners-up medals behind St Patrick’s Athletic after a titanic contest between the pair.

A great run in the League Cup brought the trophy home for the third time with victory over Shamrock Rovers. City were awarded the Munster Senior Cup when Waterford refused to play in the delayed final.

Note 1: Bray Wanderers qualified for the 1999–2000 UEFA Cup and FAI Super Cup after winning the 1999 FAI Cup Final.
