New book looking back at Dundalk FC’s double winning season launches this Friday

Stephen Kenny’s final campaign in charge of Dundalk FC is recounted in a new book which will be launched this Friday

‘Dundalk FC: Taking Back The Throne’ tells the story of one of the most successful seasons in the club’s history which saw Kenny’s wonderful group of players win their fourth SSE Airtricity League title in five years before going on to seal the double with a 2-1 victory over Cork City in the FAI Cup final at the Aviva Stadium.

With top scorer Patrick Hoban, PFAI Player of the Year Michael Duffy and Oriel Park hero Chris Shields all playing a starring role, the history books were rewritten.

Produced by local journalist Gavin McLaughlin, the book will be launched on Friday at 7pm in the County Museum,

It can be purchased online here, priced €20 with three different covers available. It will also be on sale on Friday night and in a number of local outlets around town.
