Ireland – Premier Division

The League of Ireland Premier Division (Irish: Príomhroinn Sraith na hÉireann), also known as the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division, is the top level division in both the League of Ireland and the Republic of Ireland football league system. The division was formed in 1985 following a reorganisation of the League of Ireland. St Patrick’s Athletic and Bohemians are the only current League of Ireland clubs never to have been relegated from the Premier Division. Since 2003, the Premier Division has operated as a summer league.
