He played a big part in Drogheda United’s 2014 season, appearing in thirty-one league games, one EA Cup game and in three FAI Cup games for the club and scoring two goals, as they finished ninth in the Premier Division table.
Carl has not been involved as much this season, under Johnny McDonnell, but he has made 14 appearances in the league and one in each of the EA and Leinster Senior Cups.
Walshe will give Shelbourne manager, Kevin Doherty some additional options up front, joining forwards Philly Hughes, Alan O’Sullivan, Mark Sandford and the recently arrived James English.
