FOUR LEAGUE OF Ireland clubs will receive almost €40,000 each under Uefa’s Financial Fair Play redistribution system.

Derry City, Dundalk, Sligo Rovers, and St Patrick’s Athletic will all benefit to the tune of €38,970, the FAI confirmed this morning.

Under FFP, a portion of prize money is withheld from clubs which competed in European competition but breached the financial rules. This money is then shared among other clubs via “solidarity payments.”

St Patrick’s Athletic competed in the 2014/2015 Champions League qualification stages while Derry, Dundalk and Sligo all took part in Europa League qualifying.
