Limerick players have voted in favour of industrial action following a ballot this afternoon and notice will be served on the club in the coming days.

RTÉ Sport understands that some wages due to date have been paid and that a commitment to honour other outstanding monies due has been made.

But no guarantees as to future payment of wages have been given and the players have reached a decision to strike with an overwhelming majority. 

The Super Blues are due to play Waterford on 27 July but without a positive development, that game could be in jeopardy. 

SIPTU met with the Limerick players today and a representative will meet with Bray Wanderers chairman Gerry Mulvey tonight to discuss their ongoing pay dispute which has also resulted in its players voting for strike action.

SIPTU Sport Sector Organiser, Denis Hynes, said: "SIPTU representatives, and those of our affiliate the Professional Footballers Association of Ireland (PFAI), have worked closely with our members at Bray Wanderers FC in relation to the pay dispute at the club.

"The completely unacceptable situation of players being left without wages for several weeks resulted in them voting for strike action in a ballot overseen by SIPTU representatives last week. We will be discussing the situation with the management of the club this evening with a view to finding a just resolution to this dispute."
