An indifferent start to the 1995/96 season was followed by a run that had Dundalk one point off the top halfway through the League program before Christmas, but it would be a long time before the club would be that high in the table again. A series of injuries, defeats, and an FAI Cup exit to Drogheda Utd, saw Keely quit - frustrated at being unable to strengthen his squad. The club hired player/manager John Hewitt ahead of the 1996/97 season, but he was gone before March with the club stuck in the bottom three. Dundalk managed to survive a promotion/relegation play-off with Waterford United, but it only prolonged the inevitable.

Dundalk Football Club's support base extends beyond the town of Dundalk itself in a radius of approx 30km (18 miles). It takes in the Dundalk Municipal District in north Louth, which comprises the towns of Carlingford and Blackrock as well as Dundalk; the Ardee Municipal District in mid-Louth, which comprises the towns of Ardee and Dunleer; the east Monaghan municipal district of Castleblaney-Carrickmacross; and the south Armagh part of the wider Newry and Mourne district. The total population of this area is just over 100,000. Dundalk's average Friday night League attendances in Oriel Park have been consistent at approx 3,000 in the 2015-2019 period, with attendances at 'bigger' matches of approx 4,000.
While both 1922 and 1926 have been quoted, neither is now considered correct by club historians. The true year of formation is either 1903 or 1919 - indeed, the Double win in 1979 was celebrated as having taken place in the club's Diamond Jubilee year. The answer depends on whether the G.N.R. club formed in 1919 is considered a new club or a continuation of the old club after the break caused by World War 1. It is now accepted to be the latter, giving a year of formation of 1903 - the year the G.N.R. Football Club switched codes from rugby to association football.

On 1 September 2008, Elliot signed for Championship side Preston North End on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee. He made his debut as a substitute on 16 September against Nottingham Forest, going on to score his first goal for the club on 18 October Reading, with the winning goal in their 21 win. He scored a brace against his former team Wolves at Molineux in their 31 win in January. He was to form a partnership with Jon Parkin in Preston's attack. In his debut season he made 39 appearances scoring 6 times.
The Dundalk G.N.R. Football Club in existence since about 1885 was originally a rugby football club. But in September 1903 it switched codes to association football, thus setting in motion its journey to becoming the modern day Dundalk Football Club. The new club initially competed locally in challenge matches, before becoming founder members of the inaugural Dundalk & District League (DDL) in 1905/06 alongside Dundalk Rovers, Drogheda, St. Nicholas's, St Mary's College and Carrickmacross. After the 1906/07 season, the club did not participate in the DDL again until the 1913/14 season. The DDL was dormant during the First World War, but Dundalk G.N.R. did compete in both the Irish Junior Cup and Leinster Junior Cup competitions of 1913/14, 1914/15 and 1916/17, while another side, Dundalk Town, competed in the 1917/18 and 1918/19 competitions.
The first half goals section specifies if there has been a goal or a number of goals scored in the first half of the match.
The financial crisis that hit in late 1994, which saw the club become effectively insolvent, forced the liquidation of the 1966 company, and the club was taken over by "Dundalk AFC Interim Limited", made up of former and current directors under chairman Enda McGuill. But the cash-flow problems that had faced the club through most of the 1990s remained, and crisis struck again in 1998. The club was eventually taken over by the Dundalk F.C. Co-Operative in 2000, returning the club to a supporter owned, membership-based model. But the Co-Op was unable to make the sort of investment in either the team or Oriel Park required to bring the club back to the Premier Division, and was left with little option but to sell the club's training ground, Hiney Park, in order to service debts and pay for work at Oriel Park. Developer Gerry Matthews (who had purchased Hiney Park) joined the board as CEO in 2006, then eventually took the club back into private ownership as "Dundalk FC Limited".
Dundalk Football Club continues to honour his memory, naming the club's summer academies for children the 'Barry Kehoe Summer Camp'.
On 7 August 2014, Elliott signed a one-year deal with recently relegated Football League Two side Carlisle United.

After an expected victory against Kazakhstan last Saturday (3-0), Belgium reached the 4th round of qualification for the Eurocup 2020 as leader of group I with nine points out of nine possible. The Belgian team has achieved each of their three wins by more than one goal difference, scoring exactly two goals in the first half of each match.The speed with which Belgium is taking advantage in the matches of this qualifying phase is impressive. The No. 1 FIFA ranking has opened the scoring in the first quarter of an hour of play in their three matches, and does not lose any points after scoring the first goal in a qualifier for the European Championship since September 2011.Scotland has alternated victories and defeats in official matches away from home since October 2018 (G2, E0, P2). In three of those matches (including the two victories), the Scottish team opened the scoring in the first half, twice a penalty.However, Scotland (since October 2007) links nine qualifiers for the European Championship without winning at home against selections not included in the last hype (E3, P6). In addition, since September 2003, Scotland recorded a victory and three defeats in their qualifying matches for the Euro played at home against teams of the first hype.Players to watch: Dries Mertens has opened the scoring for Belgium in two of his last three qualifiers for the Euro played at home.An Oliver Burke goal in the 89th minute gave Scotland a 2-1 victory against Cyprus in the last matchday.Statistics to consider: Belgium has won by at least one half keeping its goal clean in seven of its last eight victories in all competitions.In each of their last four defeats in Euro qualifiers played at home against seeded hosts, Scotland has conceded at least one goal within the first 30 minutes.Scotland have come to the break losing and without having seen the door in five of their last six qualifiers for the Euro at home against selections not included in the last hype.Belgium VS Scotland Prediction: 1/1 1.50Belgium VS Scotland Betting Tip: Over 3.5 Goals @ 1.80Belgium VS Scotland Score Recommendations:3-1 10.00
O'Connor won his second League Cup at the club in 1989/90, with the club's newest rivals Derry City being beaten in Oriel Park on penalties and another League title followed in 1990/91 in an end of season, winner takes all match in Turner's Cross against Cork City, the winning goal being scored by cult hero Tom McNulty. Dundalk then spurned an opportunity to progress in the European Cup, when a 1-1 draw away to Honved was followed by a 0-2 home defeat. But the squad was ageing, and the team's low-scoring, safety first playing-style was growing unpopular with supporters as it became less competitive. After failing to challenge when defending the title in 1991/92, then missing out on a round-robin play-off for the title in 1992/93, and losing the 1993 FAI Cup Final to Shelbourne (in which nine of the squad were aged over 30), it was clear another rebuild was required. Dundalk started the 1993/94 season erratically with thumping away victories being followed by defeats at home. After a home defeat to Monaghan United in October, during which he was abused by a section of the crowd, O'Connor resigned a sour end to a successful reign.
Iceland has performed at a low level in its last ten games (G2, E4, P4) and only recorded victories against teams with worse ranking in the FIFA ranking at that time. In addition, Iceland has allowed two goals or more in seven of its last ten commitments, while averaging just one goal in favor during that period.However, Iceland has shared group with Turkey in the last two qualifying processes of major UEFA tournaments (European and World Cup) and records three wins in four matches - in each of those wins won by a margin of two or more goals without receive goals against.For its part, Turkey leads this qualifying group to Euro 2020 (ECQ) after beating the big favorite, France, 2-0 on home soil. Unlike Iceland, Turkey have been very solid defensively since they have only conceded two goals in their last seven games.However, he has been more vulnerable when playing away from Turkish territory (G2, E2, P1) and in three of his last five away games he has received exactly two goals against. In the last two qualifying processes, Turkey did not stand out much as a visitor (G3, E4, P3) and only four of those ten matches ended with three or more goals.Players to watch: Johann Gudmundsson scored in the last game in Iceland. He also did it when these teams met for the last time.A very dangerous player in the Turkish squad, Kaan Ayhan has scored in two consecutive Euro 2020 qualifiers.Statistics to consider: Iceland has played four consecutive games in which at least one team has failed to score.Both teams have scored in just one of the last nine games in Turkey.If Iceland wins this match, it will have the same record it got after its first four matches on the road to Euro 2016 (G3, P1).Turkey have been at the break at the break in their last five wins.The four clashes between these two casts from 2014 to date have averaged 4.0 yellow cards per game.Iceland VS Turkey Prediction: X/1 4.50Iceland VS Turkey Betting Tip: Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.80Iceland VS Turkey Score Recommendations:2-1 10.00

The 1950s were a lean time for the club in the League. Player sales to English clubs had bankrolled the club in the late 1940s, but these sales tailed off after the departure of Club Secretary Sam Prole to Drumcondra. Struggling to make ends meet, Dundalk were regularly at or near the bottom of the table. But the club finally won the Leinster Senior Cup in 1950/51, beating St Patrick's Athletic at the death in the Final - in a game that was the first held in Ireland to use a white ball. Dundalk then went on to win the FAI Cup twice more during the decade. The first, in 1951/52, by coming from 3-1 down in the Semi-Final Replay against Waterford to win 6-4 in Extra-Time, then following that up with victory over Cork Athletic after another replay in the Final. The second, in 1957/58, by going through the competition without conceding a goal, defeating Shamrock Rovers in the Final.Inside-right Hughie Gannon broke his jaw in the process of scoring the only goal of that match and missed the celebrations, having to spend a week in hospital. In between those two victories a first round defeat to Transport in 1954 was notable for being Dundalk's first defeat in an FAI Cup tie in Oriel Park, 18 years after the club moved to the ground.
