Sean Gannon is a Red

Shelbourne FC are delighted to announce the signing of Sean Gannon.

The Ringsend native becomes Damien Duff’s first new signing for 2024. He joins the Reds having been part of the Shamrock Rovers side who won four League of Ireland titles in a row.

An accomplished defender Gannon is one of the most decorated players in League of Ireland history, a serial winner he has been part of ten League of Ireland winning sides, and has three FAI Cup winners medals, as well as three EA Sports Cups, and three FAI President’s Cups.

The 32-year-old was in high demand following his departure from Tallaght at the end of the 2023 season and his arrival at Tolka is a significant boost for Damien Duff and his side as they approach next season with high hopes.

Gannon has made over 300 senior appearances in the League of Ireland and FAI Cup since making his debut with Shamrock Rovers in 2011. The Dubliner counts the Hoops, St Patrick’s Athletic and Dundalk FC among his former clubs.

Damien Duff, Shelbourne FC Head Coach said: “We are all delighted to get Sean over the line. The foundation of our team over the past two seasons has been our defence and Sean is another great addition. He has an incredible CV but most importantly he has top quality that he will bring to the team. I am very excited to see him play for this great club.”

Sean Gannon said: “I couldn’t be happier to join Shelbourne FC. It’s an honour to be part of such a special club, I’m from Ringsend, I know what this club means to people. It’s a place I’ve always wanted to come to in my career.  I’m excited to bring my experience to the team. Damien’s vision for the next few years is really exciting and I’m delighted to be part of it. Shels is an ambitious club and I’m very happy to be calling Tolka Park home from today.”
