League of Ireland Premier Division 2006

Select Year

The 2006 season was one of mixed fortunes for Cork City. A relatively solid start to the season led to the club reaching the Setanta Sports Cup final in April, where an extra-time goal led to Cup Final defeat at the hands of Drogheda United for the second time in a matter of months. The club went on to face Cypriot Side Apollon Limassol in the First Qualifying Round of the UEFA Champions League, who they defeated 2-1 over two legs. Next up were the famous Red Star Belgrade who inflicted a 1-0 defeat on City at Turner’s Cross, while a 3-0 loss in the away leg saw the club bow out 4-0 on aggregate.

The European campaign took its toll as the club then went 5 games without a win which saw them lose ground in the title race. Despite this, results combined to leave the club only a matter of points behind going into the last few games, but a final day defeat away to Derry City saw the club finish the season in 4th place with the prospect of playing in the Intertoto Cup in the coming season.

Note 1: Shelbourne were relegated to the First Division for financial irregularities.
Note 2: Bohemians were deducted three points for fielding Jason McGuinness while he was suspended.
Note 3: Dublin City withdrew from league on 18 July 2006. All their results were expunged.
Note 4: Waterford lost promotion/relegation play-off but subsequently replaced Shelbourne for the 2007 season.
