Some are available online https://bit.ly/2M1iD7v

Of course first thing that happened on twitter was a fan complaining about the price going up...
Good stuff, great to have them available well before Christmas. It'd possibly have been better to present it as a 10% discount before 1 Feb, rather than a 10% increase after 1 Feb, but good value for money anyway.

Away to Sligo, UCD, Waterford, Bohs and Cork in the final round. At least the final game is at home - to Pats.

Ridiculous. Good to see we’ve learned from last season.
It is ridiculous, but arguably it plays into our hands. Let everyone play a shit load of games before the summer break- we should have the squad and ability to cope better than most. Then things should be easier to manage after the summer break when we've Europe to deal with.

With pre-season due to start (officially) in two weeks, and the President's Cup on the weekend of the 9/10th, it looks like we could be back in OP for friendlies before the end of January. Happy Days.

Hopefully our new management team have a few new players in mind as this doesn’t leave much time to get them in.

It's ridiculous, the league winners should always host this game if its not in a neutral venue.

I agree, though we did host it at the beginning of the season just gone despite winning neither trophy last year and Cork hosted it the two years before that even though we were league champions. FAI logic don’t you know.....

At the moment it is alternating between the two clubs as it's always us and them. I have a feeling the double for Cork related to Oriel being relaid one the years.

I've no problems with the match being played in TC, ok we are league champions / double winners but we hosted it last year, its not a big deal really. Its a warm up match, end of.

More importantly is what shape we are in, as I've said a few times before all 14 who featured in the cup final are signed back for 2019, and 3 from memory are in for 2020, Gannon, Duffy and McEleney, actually is the latter signed up to 2021? This list doesnt even include those who didnt come off the bench or who weren't on the bench like Kelly & Connolly, then the injured duo of O'Donnell and Chevedukas, but the former is out of contact, I'd def give him one year, he's worth the risk, big influence on the squad.

So overall, we are in excellent shape player wise, and we will start as firm favourites.
