Since I live in the states my knowledge of the Eircom League is limited to the Internet. But for those who follow Irish sports closely, what do you think the future holds for the league? I certainly get the impression that soccer has gained popularity in Ireland in the past couple of decades. Yet, it seems the domestic league continues to struggle in terms of attendance, fan interest and player talent. Obviously, the first division of the Eircom League never will match the level of the English Premiership. But does it have a chance at reaching the level of, say, the Scottish Premiership (minus Celtic and Rangers)? Hail Hail Galway United!
