Historic night at Terryland Park

It is an historic night at Terryland Park, as Mervue United make their First Division debut. The Galway side won promotion to the First Division after an impressive showing in the A Championship last season.

Mervue face Athlone Town in their opening match, and Town boss Brendan Place admits that it is a huge occasion for his club.

"Mervue will be up for the occasion, but it's also a celebratory occasion for our club," he says. "At one stage it looked as though there would be no League of Ireland football in Athlone but everybody rallied around the club."
