Shelbourne FC is delighted to announce the signing of highly rated teenager Aoife Kelly.
Aoife, from Carlow, is a Republic of Ireland U17 international and at 15 has already garnered an impressive reputation within the game.
Aoife is a central midfielder and arrives to Tolka Park from St Patrick’s Carlow for her maiden season in the FAI Women’s National League.
