Video: An inspirational account of Dundalk FC’s rise to the top

Even if you’re not a fan of the Lilywhites, the hairs will be standing on the back of your neck after watching this.

With only a few weeks left to go in the SSE Airtricity League season, Dundalk are sitting pretty at the top of the table, level on points with Cork City but with a game in hand and on course to win their first league title since 1995.

If Stephen Kenny’s side do go on and win the league it will be some achievement, particularly considering that it is only two years since they were on the brink of relegation from the top flight.

Together with their sponsors Fyffes, the club have charted the remarkable journey from that low point to the far happier place the club is in today, a journey that took a lot of hard work and dedication from people inside the club and out.

It really is inspirational stuff and as we alluded to above, while it will be more greatly appreciated by Dundalk fans, you don’t have to be a Lilywhites supporter to be impressed.

Fair play to all involved, this is great stuff.
