League of Ireland Premier Division 2007

Select Year

The 2007 season started with some controversy, as new signings Colin Healy and Gareth Farrelly were deemed ineligible for play by F.I.F.A. in a controversial dispute. Playmaker George O’Callaghan was also sold to English side Ipswich town in January. This contributed to an inconsistent season start, with elimination from the Setanta Cup by Linfield in the semi-finals, a record-equaling 4-1 defeat to Sligo Rovers. In August 2007, star striker Roy O’Donovan joined FA Premiership side Sunderland for an League record fee. 2007 also saw the club’s ownership change hands, from Chairman Brian Lennox to investment firm Arkaga, appointing Aidan Tynan (formerly of Bord na gCon) as General Manager.

City finished 4th in the league for the second year running, however the club claimed its second FAI Cup in a 1-0 win over Longford Town at the RDS. Richardson was removed from the manager’s position in the days following the famous victory.

Note 1: Longford Town were deducted 6 points for failing to meet licensing requirements.
