The League of Ireland, like so many other sporting events, fell victim to the weather this weekend. All the games on Friday night were postponed, including Dundalk’s trip to the Brandywell to face Derry City.
The Lilywhites are now preparing for their home tie with leaders Cork City next Friday, but the week without a game may leave them somewhat rusty, considering the unexpected break is coming so early in the season. The Louth side had gotten over a stuttering start to their campaign with an emphatic 8-0 win over Limerick.
The clash with the reigning champions is sure to be a cracker, after John Caulfield’s charges claimed the President’s Cup last month. Ties between the two teams rarely disappoint.
In order to keep fresh ahead of the City showdown, Stephen Kenny’s side will play a friendly game on Sunday afternoon against NIFL Premiership outfit Warrenpoint Town in Oriel Park.
The game is open to the public, free admission, but there will be collections for the Dundalk Simon Community.
Dundalk FC will play a friendly against Stephen McDonnell’s Warrenpoint Town tomorrow at 12pm at Oriel Park. Free admission with donations taken for Dundalk Simon Community.

A fantastic gesture, and here’s hoping that a big crowd will turn out.
