The former Chelsea FC, Newcastle United FC, Fulham FC and Blackburn Rovers FC winger takes over our SSE Airtricity League Premier Division team having most recently coached within the Shelbourne FC Academy.

The two-time English Premier League winner will begin the role with immediate effect as the Club prepares for the return of Premier Division football to Tolka Park in 2022.

Having played 100 times for the Republic of Ireland as well as being a First Team Coach at Celtic FC and Assistant Coach for the Republic of Ireland senior team, Damien brings the highest pedigree to Shelbourne FC.

With our Men’s U17 Men’s National League team having a successful season under his management, Damien has already helped progress young players to our First Team showing the same vision, passion for youth development and ambition our Club has planned.
