12 PREMIER DIVISION teams and four First Division clubs were awarded licences for the 2015 SSE Airtricity League season, following a meeting of the Independent Club Licensing Committee of the Football Association of Ireland today.

However, the Licencing Committee won’t issue a final decision on the remaining licences until 23 February, after it sought further clarification from Bray Wanderers in relation to its application, and pending the satisfactory receipt of additional information from Cobh Ramblers FC and Athlone Town FC.

Clubs consequently have five working days to lodge an appeal on the decision.
