FRIDAY NIGHT’S SSE Airtricity League Premier Division fixture between Finn Harps and St Patrick’s Athletic has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, while the First Division meeting of Galway United and Limerick has also been called off. 

With Met Eireann issuing a Status Yellow rainfall warning for a number of counties, Finn Park has been left unplayable ahead of tonight’s fixture, which was due to kick-off at 8pm.

As there is further bad weather forecast for Ballybofey, the decision to postpone the game has been made as early as possible to accommodate St Pat’s and their travelling support.

The fixture has been rescheduled for Friday 6 September, with kick-off at 8pm at Finn Park.

The game between Galway and Limerick has also been postponed and a new date will be announced in due course.

Elsewhere in the Premier Division tonight, Shamrock Rovers host Bohs in a Dublin derby, Waterford welcome Derry City to the RSC, UCD entertain Dundalk and Neale Fenn takes charge of Cork City for the first time against Sligo Rovers.
