Harps make first trip to Tallaght

finnharps crestFinn Harps play their first competitive game of the season away from Finn Park on Sunday when they make the trip to the capital to take on Shamrock Rovers’ second string at Tallaght Stadium

The game will mark Harps’ first ever senior game in Tallaght and also a first of four games against the Rovers ‘B’ squad who become the first club in Ireland to field two teams in the League of Ireland in the same season.

Harps have a number of injury worries ahead of the trip to Dublin.  Kevin McHugh and Gareth Harkin are both having trouble with their hamstring.  Damien McNulty has a virus while Josh Mailey is struggling with a calf injury.

Harps will make the trip to Tallaght on Sunday hoping to build on last weekend’s results in the League and Cup at Finn Park.

Ollie Horgan got his tenure as boss off to a decent start with a scoreless draw against Waterford United at Finn Park last Friday night and followed it up with a 3-2 victory over Cockhill Celtic in the League Cup three days later.

Kick off is 3pm.
