Dundalk will be without key midfielder Chris Shields for this weekend's FAI Cup final against Shamrock Rovers.
The reigning League of Ireland player of the year has been hit with a one-game suspension for accumulating eight yellow cards this season.
Shields picked up his eighth booking in a dead-rubber 1-0 loss to Cork City on October 18.
An amnesty exists for players who accrue a one-game ban for five bookings before a cup final, but not for eight.
Dundalk are aiming to complete the treble by winning Sunday's final at the Aviva Stadium.
