2010 Galway United F.C. season. This is a list of competitive matches played by Galway United in 2010. Following the departure of Sean Connor from his post at Dundalk, 24 hours after the final game of the season,[1] Ian Foster sought permission from Galway United CEO Nick Leeson to speak with Dundalk, but was denied. He subsequently resigned his position and was appointed team manager at Dundalk on 4 December 2009.[2] Foster cited alleged payment problems during the 2009 season as justification for his contact with Dundalk and his subsequent appointment there.[3] On 10 January 2010, Sean Connor was appointed as team manager by Galway United. Between the end of 2009 and the start of the 2010 season, Galway United and Dundalk effectively swapped team managers, as Ian Foster moved in the opposite direction to Dundalk.[4]
