Inside Limerick FC's FAI Cup win over Derry City as Treaty aim to repeat historyTREATY UNITED versus Derry City is David versus Goliath — an amateur First Division team against a well-funded, full-time Premier Division outfit. But no one at the Brandywell will take it for granted having been burned before by a team from Shannonside that, on paper, were the League of Ireland’s Ragball Rovers. 2Limerick FC beat Derry City in the 2002 FAI Cup 2Treaty Utd look to repeat that history against Derry on SundayCredit: Sportsfile It was 2002 and the Candystripes faced Limerick in the League Cup final.
” CONN A ROLL O’Connor, who would go on to coach at Cork, manage Wexford and remains sought after in the League of Ireland having come close to a coaching return last winter, reckons the turning point was that Christmas. He said: “We played Drogheda at home and drew. “They won the league that year and it was the genesis of that good team they had in 2006. But we were worth our result. “And I think we continued that for the rest of the season as was seen in the Cup games. ” Ultimately, it set up a two-legged final that few outside Limerick expected to be anything other than a cakewalk for Derry City. Yet, the Shannonsiders won the first leg 2-1 as Cieran Foley levelled the game in first-half stoppage time before a late John Whyte penalty won it. But the second leg presented a tough challenge. O’Connor added: “It was a bit like the Alamo. “I only looked back at it for the first time sometime in the last year.
“I think a lot of more experienced players who had been there before, they knew it was going to be a tough season coming. “And it certainly was for the first half of it. But what we did have was a good group. “Ray O’Halloran said to me, the one good thing was they weren’t contaminated by junior football, that was his word. “They hadn’t got bad habits, and had a great attitude. “In the League Cup, we beat Galway in extra-time, Cork late on, Shamrock Rovers late on, and then we pushed Derry for 90 minutes in a first leg and 120 minutes in the second.

“I spent the next four or five minutes getting lads to get back to where they were supposed to play! ” NAIVE SPEAKER O’Connor can laugh at it now, but admitted it seems bad now to think how no one knew the rules in advance of the game. He added: “It was probably my naivety in my first year, and there wasn’t a whole lot of seniority around me.

It was only a short stint and didn’t work out for whatever reasons but from the minute I went up, they made me feel welcome and it will be nice to go up to the Brandywell again and see a few familiar faces. “I was 21, I would have loved to have done it later in my career when I was a bit more mature, but I couldn’t turn down a club the size of Derry. I suppose the standout memory was that Derry hadn’t beaten Sligo in seven or eight years and I scored the winner in that game. There was a great buzz around the place after that and that was a standout. ” Curran played alongside the McEleney brothers and Michael Duffy in his short time at Derry and while he is looking forward to renewing old acquaintances, he wants just one thing from Sunday, and that’s to book a date in the FAI Cup final next month.
It's not the 'Enda' the road for Treaty UnitedEnda Curran knows the odds are against Treaty United this weekend, but he is not giving up on the possibility of a footballing fairytale. The Limerick side come to the Brandywell on Sunday for their FAI Cup semi-final as huge underdogs, but it is a tag that Curran and his team mates have gotten used to on their terrific run in the competition this season.
Noel O’Connor, then 28, was the boss at the time in his first year as a League of Ireland manager, and remembers how everything was stacked against them. He told SunSport: “I would have been over the youth team before that and I think they made me manager because they had no option but to give it to me because they had no budget. “You were talking a budget of £500 a week, and that would include the bus and the meals.

Curran himself scored a fantastic hat trick in Treaty’s quarterfinal win over UCD, and he admits everyone at the club is thrilled to have come so far in such a short time. “The mood in the camp has been very good throughout the year, ” he said. “Our goal was to try and make the playoffs again considering it’s only the club’s second year.
Limerick finished bottom of the First Division that season, had a tiny budget and odd training facilities, while Derry would go on to win the FAI Cup the following year, the first summer campaign. But over two legs, a second one at the Brandywell that included confusion over the away goal rule, extra-time, and then penalties, David beat Goliath.
The thing with UCD is that we knew they were coming in on the back of a few good results, beating Dundalk and a few more, but we knew if we stuck to the game plan and just carried it out that we would have a great chance. I don’t know if we expected to win as emphatically as we did but it’s a credit to us and a credit to the management as well that we can go and compete with those teams. ” Former Candystripe Curran himself is a former Candystripe having played at the Brandywell at the start of the 2014 season. He does not hide the fact that he remains fond of the club despite his short time there. “I don’t know if it’s the draw I wanted, ” he laughed. “I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Derry.
It’s way beyond our expectations to go somewhere like Derry. It’s a great occasion and we get to go up and showcase what we have. We have a lot of young players in our squad and look it will be a great occasion for them, and for the lads who have been there before we’ll try and use our experience to hopefully out on a good spectacle and we’ll give it a go. ” Still less than two seasons old, Treaty finished in the play-off places in their first year and are now just one game away from an Aviva final in their second. The club has hit the ground running since debuting at the start of 2021, with the win over UCD making people sit up and really take notice. “Looking at the level in the First Division this year alone with the full-time teams, I think we have pitted ourselves against them well, ” Curran reflected. “We’ve come out of those games with our heads held high.

“We had no training facilities. We trained at Rathbane but a junior club had taken over, so we could not go inside the white lines on the pitch — so you couldn’t really do pitch work. “I was also coaching Mary Immaculate College as well, so I got us a slot on the Sunday that was free where we could do set-pieces. ” But O’Connor simply made do and his team surprised opponents. He added: “The players were on about £20 a week, it was before the euro. “But I would have known a lot of them from the youth team, or coaching them in school. “We had John Whyte who was 24, and John Hughes who was 24. But the rest were 19 or 20, had no experience, or had never played for anyone but Limerick.

It’s on YouTube now so I watched it back. “There was a big crowd and kick-off was delayed by 20 minutes, some of the players were getting nervous, and then we lost Conor Molan to a pretty bad challenge. “And they scored with 70 minutes to go with a penalty from Liam Coyle which was debatable. Not whether it was a foul, but if it was in the area. “We didn’t know there wasn’t away goals. So I changed it to three at the back and we went for it for five or six minutes. Then there was an announcement over the public address that away goals didn’t count.
