Victory For Dundalk In Europa League First Qualifying Round


Dundalk have celebrated another memorable European victory.

Stephen Kenny’s men opened their Europa League campaign with a 1-0 win over Lavadia Tallinn in Estonia last night.

Dylan Connolly’s goal hands the Lillywhites a great chance to progress to the second qualifying round, as they will have home advantage in the second leg at Oreil Park next week.


Derry City and Shamrock Rovers have a much bigger task.

The Candystripes lost 2-0 to Dinamo Minsk at the Brandywell, while AIK Stockholm beat Rovers 1-0 in Tallaght.

Manager Stephen Bradley is certain his team can bounce back in Sweden:

“We know it was one mistake that cost us – I don’t need to do anything – I think the players understand what went wrong.”
