Oriel Park shaping up well for league opener this Friday
It’s finally here.
The countdown to the new SSE Airtricity League season is into its final week with Dundalk fans counting down the days until this Friday’s league opener at home to Shamrock Rovers.
A lot of work has gone on at Oriel Park in recent weeks, with a new pitch being laid which Stephen Kenny’s side hope to train on for the first time later this week.
Local man Gav Gall has certainly whet the appetite for the return of football to Oriel however by capturing stunning drone shots of the new pitch in place.
While it still remains to be seen how the pitch plays, it certainly beats its predecessor in how it looks.
Meanwhile, Dundalk FC have also released a 24-themed teaser video ahead of the new season. Check it out below…
