Cork City v Dundalk | Pre Season Friendly | Friday 27 January 2023 ko 14.00 **AUL***

Post by oldfogey »

For those who were thinking of going up to watch, the AUL Grounds are in North Co Dublin just outside the M50.

At the M50 exit on the M1 follow signs for R139 Malahide (Centre lanes on M1). Top of the ramp take the first exit at the roundabout for R139 Malahide. After 80m take the 1st exit at the roundabout in front of the Clayton Hotel onto Stockhole Lane/Clonshaugh Road. The complex is about a kilometre on the left.

Historically there has been a charge to park. Bring €3 or €4 in coins

Reviews indicate that there are beverage facilities on match nights but I'm not sure if they would be open on a Friday afternoon. There is a Circle K behind the Clayton so you can stock up there. Cold, windy, and wet is the best way to describe the place. Leave yourself time to find out which pitch is being used and to get to it although you would expect the game to be close to the changing room block. There are 12 grass plus 1 all weather pitch

**** I understand that the tweet has been deleted so I would have to assume the new venue is UNCONFIRMED***

Usually because one or both teams want to play trialists in secret.

Some trials are more secret than others, or it could be Cork calling the shots here. It's their fixture.

Re: Cork City v Dundalk | Pre Season Friendly | Friday 27 January 2023 ko 13.00 TBC **Behind Closed Doors***

Post by oldfogey »

I have to hold my hand up and admit I've never posted a photo on here so my OAP attempt at dropping a screenshot from FAI Connect failed miserably.

According to their app the game kicks off at 1pm. (They had the Harps game listed for 19.30, so who knows).

And no, it doesn't give the venue.
