VALERIE MULCAHY, ONE of the country’s most decorated sportswomen, has signed a deal to play in the Women’s National League for Cork City.

The 33-year-old, who won 10 All-Ireland titles during a glittering inter-county football career, will return to the club for the remainder of the 2016 season.

Mulcahy featured for the Leesiders during the inaugural WNL campaign last year and scored the winning goal in Cork’s first ever league victory.

“I’m really excited to be back at Cork City and playing in the Women’s National League,” Mulcahy said.

“We have a good squad with plenty of talented young players and it’s a nice challenge for us to be competing in the WNL. I think I can add a bit of experience and hopefully contribute to the club collecting some points throughout the season.

“I’m looking forward to enjoying playing sport.”

Mulcahy, a PE and Maths teacher at Gael Colaiste Mhuire secondary school, retired from inter-county football in April after guiding her county to five All-Ireland victories in consecutive years.

Additionally, she won 10 Munster Championships and nine league titles.

“I am delighted to sign Valerie Mulcahy,” Cork City Women’s manager, Frank Kelleher, added.

“She is a great addition to the squad. Valerie brings a wealth of experience having played at the highest level of sport with Ireland, Cork City Women’s and the Cork ladies footballers. It’s great to have her return to the club this season.”

Cork are currently sixth in the WNL having suffered four defeats from their opening four outings. Their next game is against Kilkenny United on Wednesday evening.
