Historic fixture for Treaty United

Marc Ludden with Treaty United manager Tommy Barrett.

TREATY United will celebrate the club’s 100th fixture with a visit from Kerry in the SSE Airtricity First Division to the Markets Field Stadium this evening (kick-off 7.45pm).

Since its inception, Treaty has been managed by the likeable Tommy Barrett.

Taking its name from the 1691 Treaty of Limerick, the club was only formed in 2020, under the leadership of Chairman Conn Murray and others, following the demise of any local representation in the League of Ireland.

Fresh from a weekend break, Barrett’s side come into the tie on the back of a huge 1-0 (goal from Dean George) at Finn Harps.

In eighth position, Treaty remain in remote contention for a promotion play-off berth.

The club’s rearranged home outing with Waterford is next Monday.

In the Women’s FAI Cup first round, Treaty entertain Peamount of Dublin on Saturday at 2pm. Influential Shauna Pearson is available to home manager Alban Hysa for selection following injury.

On the local front, Premier League holders Pike Rovers, who remain under the astute management of Robbie Williams, are already off to a bright start with two wins from as many starts. In their opener, Eoin Hanrahan, Nathan O’Callaghan, and Adam Lipper all found the net in a 3-0 defeat of visitors Nenagh AFC and then were 1-0 winners at Newport, with the goal from Hanrahan.

The Premier League continues on Sunday morning.
