League of Ireland Premier Division 2005

Select Year

Manager Pat Dolan was sacked in pre-season and replaced by Damien Richardson. Following a sluggish start to the season, City went on to play some outstanding football, particularly in a UEFA cp run which saw them dispose of Lithuanian side Ekranas, and then Swedish champions-elect Djurgardens, before finally falling to Slavia Prague in the first round proper. The disappointment of exiting the UEFA cup was quickly put to rest as the team’s domestic performances remained consistent.

The season ended with a thrilling last day title decider at Turner’s Cross against Derry City- a match which sold out 2 weeks in advance. A 2-0 win for the home side meant the title was back on Leeside after a long wait. The chance of the double was dashed by a 2-0 defeat to Drogheda United at Landsdowne Road in the FAI Cup Final.

Note 1: Shamrock Rovers deducted 8 points for financial irregularities.
