Richmond park scaled

Season to kick off

The domestic soccer season formally begins today as Shamrock Rovers host Dundalk in the President’s Cup Final at Tallaght Stadium in west Dublin. Last Friday, Inpho’s Laszlo Geczo took this aerial shot of Richmond Park, the ground of St. Patrick’s Athletic in Inchicore, on the south side of the city. The Saints will begin their campaign with three Friday night fixtures: at Rovers in Tallaght next week; then at home to Drogheda; and on April 2, another Dublin derby, against Bohemians across the river at Dalymount Park.
