REPORT: Treaty United pull out of Airtricity League Application Process

In another sensational turn of events, reports on Thursday evening suggest that the recently formed Treaty United’s application to perform in the underage and women’s Airtricity League in 2020 has been withdrawn.

It is believed that trials and training were cancelled for the various Treaty United squads on Wednesday evening due to the threat of litigation. The news comes as Limerick FC have began planning for the new Airtricity League season and released a statement with a view to recruiting players this evening;

While there was much confusion, when Limerick Live 95 FM soccer correspondent Mike Aherne questioned Limerick FC on the transfer window and the eligibility of Treaty United players, Limerick responded with some clarification on the matter:

It is another shocking development and comes just two weeks after Treaty United held a press conference in the Castletroy Park Hotel with a view to creating ‘a new dawn’ for Limerick football. At that stage, it was believed that ‘Limerick United’ as they were formerly known, would be the sole representative in the Airtricity League Women’s and underage leagues for the forthcoming season with a view to re-entering the First Division in 2021.

Limerick United were forced to change their name to Treaty United following the threat of legal action from Limerick owner Pat O’Sullivan, as he had previously registered the name Limerick United.

Tonight’s news is a bitter blow to the coaches and players of Treaty United including former Limerick FC coaches John Grehan and Tommy Barrett. The former has voiced his dismay at the decision on social media. We await further news and confirmation on the matter.
