Ex-Cork City defender Darren Dennehy follows brother Billy to Limerick

The Kerry-born centre-half arrives from St Patrick’s Athletic.

LIMERICK HAVE BEEN busy in the transfer market and today announced the signing of defender Darren Dennehy.

The Tralee native arrives from St Patrick’s Athletic a week after his brother Billy made the same switch.


The 29-year-old centre-half spent time in England on the books at Everton, Cardiff City and Barnet before returning to Ireland to join Cork City in 2013. He’s been with the Saints for the past two years.

Along with the Dennehy brothers, new Limerick boss Tommy Barrett has also brought in Eoin Wearan (Bohemians), Mark O’Sullivan (Waterford), Daniel Kearns (Sligo Rovers), Danny Morriessey (Finn Harps), Cian Coleman (Cobh Ramblers), Connor Ellis (Cork City) and Shaun Kelly (Ballynanty Rovers).
