History of Regional United F.C.
Regional United F.C. was founded in 1974 through the efforts of Lorcan Harney and
Seamus Ryan, who appreciated the need to offer football to a growing urban
community on the south side of the city. From it's fairly humble beginnings it
has grown and developed along with the city and it now stands as one of the more
successful clubs in Limerick. It now boasts an excellent playing complex on the
same site where it began which is a tribute to the commitment of the members to
schoolboy and schoolgirl football over a long period of time.
It's growth was very quick in the early stages, and it became one of the bigger
clubs playing in the Limerick District League. Today there are over 300 playing
members from the ranks of Under 7 to Junior A.
Several of the original Committee who managed successful schoolboy teams stayed
on to organise what has become a very successful Junior football setup, with the
Junior A team being now established as one of the leading teams in the city.
Regional United teams have recently reached U/16 National Cup Final, and have
had international representation at that level.
Junior A's have been Tuohy Cup winners, have had Junior International
representation, have been to the last 16 in the FAI Cup and to Munster Junior
Semi Finals. This added to the local league and cup successes at each and every
level gives the club and it's supporters continued enjoyment of it's football
and great hope for the future.
The schoolgirl section of the club was formed in 2003/4 and since then has gone
from strength to strength with currently 70 girls playing with the club from u8
to u18 level.
The schoolgirl section of Regional Utd plays in the Limerick County and district
schoolboy and schoolgirl league and have had success at all age groups . We are
very proud that players from the girls section have been part of the squads that
represented Limerick at the Gaynor cup at u14 and u16 age groups.
