DUNDALK HAVE ANNOUNCED the signing of striker Kurtis Byrne.

The 22-year-old Dubliner arrives from SPL side Ross County, although he has spent a number of seasons on-loan with Stirling Albion, East Fife and Alloa while under contract at Hibernian.

Byrne is the son of former Celtic midfielder Paul Byrne, who enjoyed spells with Bohemians, St Patrick’s Athletic, Bohemians, Kilkenny and, briefly, Dundalk. Kurtis moved from schoolboy football to Norwich City before heading to Scotland and joins having most recently lined out for Brechin City.

Speaking to, Byrne said: “I have been away from home for a long time and I believed it was time for a new challenge in my career. I was delighted to get the call from Stephen (Kenny) and it didn’t take long for me to decide to join Dundalk”.

Stephen has assembled a good side and I am very much looking forward to starting pre-season training with the lads.

I have gained a lot of experience but now I want to establish myself at Dundalk FC and show what I can do.”
