The appointment of an examiner comes in the same week as Limerick FC has been rocked by a Garda investigation into irregular betting patterns in some of their games. (Read more here)

Also mentioned in court was that Chairman Pat O'Sullivan "is willing to hand over control of the football club to a new investor to ensure the continuity of the club into the future"
