David O’Leary joins Ramblers for 2021 Campaign

Cobh Ramblers FC are delighted to announce the signing of former Cork City and Waterford midfielder David O’Leary for the 2021 League of Ireland season. David joins us from Munster Senior League side Avondale, having also played for Limerick, Galway and Shelbourne in the past.

The central midfielder came through the Academy set-up at College Corinthians, before breaking into the first team at Limerick FC in 2010. He enjoyed four years on Shannonside, and picked up a First Division medal as Limerick were promoted to the top tier in 2012. After making over 80 appearances for the Blues, in 2014 O’Leary moved to Cork City and helped them to a runners-up spot in the Premier Division. He then spent a season at then newly promoted Galway United in 2015, before spells at Waterford and Shelbourne. In 2018 he signed for MSL Premier Division side Avondale United, and helped them win the 2019 FAI Intermediate Cup, alongside current Ramblers goalkeeper Sean Barron.

“I’m delighted to be here. When Stuart Ashton got onto me a few weeks back, it was nice knowing that there would be football ahead. I’ve played at League of Ireland level before so it’s good to get back to it.

“I started off as a box to box midfielder but I’ve play a bit more of a deeper role now. Whatever Stu asks me to do I’m happy to do that. The club has been on the been on the border of getting to play-offs in recent years and if I can contribute to going that one step further then it will be a good year.”

David joins Cian Murphy, Jake Hegarty and James McCarthy in signing for the club this weekend. Keep an eye on all things Ramblers for further news in the near future.
