• Shane O’Connor signs for Shamrock Rovers

    Stephen Kenny, manager of Shamrock Rovers, Ireland’s most successful football club, has further added to his squad with the signing of left-back, Shane O’Connor just before the end of the transfer window.

    The 22-year-old defender joins the Hoops from Cork City having signed for the Leesiders at the start of the 2012 season.

    The Cork native was previously with Ipswich Town and has made international appearances for Ireland at Under 17, 19 and 21 level.

    Kenny has been chasing O’Connor’s signature since before the 2012 season and is happy to finally get his man to strengthen the rovers’ squad.
