2014 was Cork City’s 30th year competing in the League of Ireland and 3rd consecutive season in the Premier Division. It was also manager John Caulfield’s first season in charge of Cork City. The Leesider’s finished 2nd place in the league after a dramatic final game of the season against Dundalk. Like 1991/92, City entered the game only needing a draw to secure the title but Dundalk came out victorious in the league decider. It was a trophy-less season for the Rebel Army, with an early exit from the FAI Cup at the hands of Bohemians and a quarter-final defeat to Shamrock Rovers in the League Cup.
Note 1: UCD relegated after losing the promotion / relegation play-off.
