"We've left two behind us" | Dundalk desperate to complete treble


Share this article


As Dundalk look to complete a domestic treble after securing the league title on Monday night, defender Brian Gartland stressed that it is the least that this team should be hoping to achieve. 

Becoming a League of Ireland winner for the fifth time on Monday night, the prospect of Dundalk securing treble success does not surprise Brian Gartland.

"We knew the league win was coming," he explained to Off the Ball, "and it was great to get it done and a great way to finish it.

"In terms of the treble, if I'm being honest with you, in 2015 we did the double and we lost on penalties in the League Cup semi-final to Galway.

"Last year we did the double and lost to Cobh in the semi-final of the League Cup, and I've said it both times that it is a gripe of mine because it is something we should be winning comfortably with the squads we've had.

"We've left two trebles behind us."

Joining Dundalk in 2013, the 32-year-old defender played a pivotal role in the club's revival under Stephen Kenny.

Disappointed to have taken on something of a peripheral role as of late under Vinny Perth, Gartland nevertheless acknowledged that the same desire for domestic dominance exists within the squad.

"That has always been the aspiration," he explained, "for myself and other players here it has been a niggling thing because we should have a treble.

"Only one team has done it over the last 30, 40 years, and you're that close and it is a sign of this team that you're never happy unless you have everything.
