Over the previous few seasons the youth team had been neglected, and Tuohy blooded young players by putting them straight into the first team.But it was too much to build a side that could sustain a title challenge, and he eventually quit almost three years to the day after joining the club, criticising a lack of local support in the process.To recover the situation, a new board took over the running of the club, and hired English player/manager John Smith from Walsall.
At first the club played challenge matches against other teams in the area, including sides from British Army regiments garrisoned in the town.
Their traditional colours of white shirts, with black shorts and trim, were adopted in 1940.
Their core support is drawn from the area now comprising the Dundalk Municipal District, and its mid-Louth, South Armagh, East Monaghan hinterland.
Founded in 1903 as the works-team of the Great Northern Railway, they entered the League in 1926 and became the first club outside of Dublin to win the title in 1932–33.
They have subsequently won honours in each of the last nine decades to become the second most successful club in the League's history, and the most successful in the Premier Division era.
