Dundalk laughing at Bohs travel troubles

At the end of the 1992/93 season leaders Bohemians traveled to Dundalk on the last day only needing a point to secure the title (their first since 1978). On the way their bus broke down causing kick off to be delayed 45 minutes.  Dundalk won 1-0 and three teams ended the season level on points; Cork City, Shelbourne and Bohs. Cork eventually won the league title after two round-robin play offs.

When Bohs next visited Oriel Park, this ‘ad’ appeared in the official match programme.

Somewhat ironically Turlough O’Connor resigned as manager of Dundalk shortly after this to take up the managers role at Bohs.
