Hey i will put more info latter, basically the setanta cup is a a competition between eircom clubs(mainly rep.of ireland teams) and the irish league(all n.ireland teams) its has group stages from which 2 teams from to groups make it threw to semi finals,
basically a competition to see which team is the best team on the island of ireland.
yea i agree with that, he also only got 6 caps for northern Ireland, but saying that there was no way he was getting to play ahead of Dowie or O'Boyle, back in the day, and then he was forgotten about

A new team will enter the Eircom League in the 2nd division in place of defunct Kilkenny City. They'll be playing less than 20 mins from where I live. Hope to see a few games. Hope they can develop properly with the right support as the Fingal region is the quickest grown area of Ireland, and...
