Dundalk FC have shown their class by rescuing a bus full of stranded fans on the M1 this morning.
The fans, who were on their way to the airport to cheer on the Lilywhites for their trip to AZ Alkmaar, were stranded after their bus broke down on the motorway.
After being stranded for 10 minutes, the 52 seater Dundalk team coach pulled up on it’s way to the airport. Dundalk manager Stephen Kenny stepped off the bus, and said “hop on lads.”
The story was reported this morning by the Dundalk Democrat, and has since been confirmed.
The Irish champions have won all six matches since drawing 1-1 away to Legia Warsaw in the qualifying play-off round of the Champions League, and sit 10 points clear in the Airtricity League, but they will face a tough test in Holland in their opening Euro League group stage clash.
Darren Meenan and Ciaran O’Connor are the only injury doubts ahead of tomorrow’s game, and Stephen Kenny will be hoping his side can start their group campaign with a precious away win.
Maccabi Tel Aviv of Israel and Russian team Zenit St Peterburg are the other two teams in Group D.
