4 Loans is the max any LOI club can make, seemingly this is a rule that the FAI have made clear to all clubs.

In hindsight I really don't think the club could have acted faster, yes it was slow at times and frustrating with the GK's so late arriving, but the new owner only arrived in Dec.

It remains to be seen how many of these players will be decent or pants. I do think that we could've done with another experienced head at centre half instead of youth and also I think it's bonkers to not have cover for an inexperienced left back.

Still I think this squad should be good enough to stay up.
Ye left back be the one position i'd be concerned about too. Maybe Muller and Benson enough to cover it if Walker starts, but feels light ye
Both have played LB in 2023, and remember Benson was picked ahead of a fully fit Leahy for a good few games in R4 last year. That said I would much prefer Benson in MF, I have a feeling he has one big season ahead, hope I`m right !

Yeah 4 is the max. Shamrock Rovers have 4 loan players. Johnny Kenny, Markus Poom, Aaron McEneff and Darragh Burns.

And there was me hoping for someone else to ensure the Shed have a steady supply of yokes and grass.

Kenny To Bohs is picking up pace online. Few Bohs heads believe its a done deal at €150k per year.

Vinny Perth and Gareth McGlynn were adamant on off the ball that Kenny wouldn't take the Bohs job. Maybe more Perth hoping he would be in the frame himself.

Kenny is 4 months out of work and hasn't been getting any reported interest outside Ireland. I think to be on radar of UK clubs you have to have had recent success. Kenny had success with Dundalk but left in 2018. I don't think he done enough at International to get championship or a good league 1 job.

Do we not think he will have better options that DFC when / if he is released?

I doubt he will be released. He was starting today. He joined in Jan on a 3 1/2 year deal .

Seanie Maguire is out of contract in the summer and the talk is he will return to LOI. John Caulfield wants him at Galway.
