Limerick FC chairman Pat O’Sullivan had little to say today in response to questions from RTE Soccer Correspondent Tony O’Donoghue in relation to possible strike action from playing staff in the coming week.
It is understood that Limerick FC players will ballot for strike action tomorrow after the failure of the club to pay April’s wages. Limerick players only received their overdue March wages at the home fixture with Bray Wanderers two weeks ago. This is the second consecutive month where non-payment of wages has occurred.
O’Sullivan was attending an FAI Council meeting at the National Sports Complex where members were discussing the recent controversy surrounding the Irish game’s governing body and was approached by O’Donoghue upon leaving the meeting.
O’Sullivan also stated his confidence in future investment and re-iterated that the “club will be fine.” The recent revelations from injured player Sean Russell regarding the failure of the club to pay for his operation has added to the problems on Shannonside.
