League of Ireland champions Dundalk say the break-in to their offices at Oriel Park is "extremely disappointing" and that a Garda investigation is now underway.

The club have been left to pick up the pieces after intruders caused "significant damage" to property and stole a number of items.

A laptop, kindle and a number of jerseys set to be auctioned off for local charities have been stolen, as well as shirts from last year’s league and cup winning team which were due to be given to the club’s sponsors.
