Programme notes are usually a boring read.

There can be a set template for what a manager will write in the programme ahead of the game. It usually includes welcoming the opposition the the ground, commenting on the last performance and previewing the game in question.

Dundalk manager Stephen Kenny, does not live by that mantra. In his programme notes, ahead of Dundalk's 1-1 draw with Hafnarfjordur, Kenny decided to speak about what has been a tumultuous period in British politics. 

On the day when David Cameron formally resigned as British Prime Minister, Kenny praised the former Conservative leader for his actions in dealing with Bloody Sunday. The Dubliner was in charge of Derry City when Cameron apologised for what happened in 1972.

"The fact that a Conservative Prime Minister would make such a prompt forthright unequivocal apology gained David Cameron huge respect in Derry".

You never know what you might find in a League or Ireland programme...
