The purpose of this website is to publicise profiles for the players and managers of Dundalk FC. Initially it will consist of circa 375 players from the period 1926-27 to the mid-1990s. The current plan is to include entries for every player who has made a minimum of 30 first team appearances. It will also include entries for selected players whose total appearances were less than 30.

Profiles may be accessed through a number of ways as follows:

I would welcome contact from any one who has information about the players featured that they feel would improve the quality of the profiles. Please feel free to email us at

In time I plan to expand the site by covering other aspects of the history of Dundalk FC.
