That led to a European ban for three years and this is the final year of the Candystripes’ suspension.  Derry would have been guaranteed at least 110,000 Euros for playing in the competition.The re-formed club, with support from the FAI, asked for the rule to be relaxed but Uefa refused to relent. An application argued that the club was a new entity, and as such was entitled to apply for a licence. The Association will consult with the club regarding the matter and both parties will study the decision in the coming days. Should no appeal of this decision be made to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), Bohemian FC will be nominated for UEFA competition in place of Derry City FC. Derry finished third in last year’s Airtricity League Premier Division. Further drop in people receiving PUP in Donegal By News Highland – February 22, 2012 last_img read more
