Airtricity League 2012
Rep. of Ireland | UEFA
Monaghan United have withdrawn from Airtricity League due to the financial implications of playing in the Premier Division. The club have released a statement on their official website explaining their reasons.
"We decided to bring to an end our involvement with the Airtricity League of Ireland. The reason we have taken this decision is mainly but not only financial. To keep a team playing at the highest level in this country is expensive and with the clubs inability to tie down a anchor sponsor, coupled with the rising costs of membership of senior football and the lack of support from the national league it was felt that no other option was available."
