Shels extend Farrell deal

Shelbourne FC are pleased to confirm that it has extended the contract of Shane Farrell for another season.

The Finglas man joined the Reds in 2017 and is currently the longest serving player in the first team.

Farrell signed a new deal last season with the option to extend to the end the 2024 campaign.

Farrell has won the SSE Airtricity League of Ireland First Division twice with Shelbourne in 2019 and 2021. 

The 23-year-old has made 157 appearances for the Reds, scoring 18 goals. Last season Farrell made 33 appearances for the Reds as they finished 4th in the League of Ireland Premier Division.

Farrell joins Conor Kearns, Gavin Molloy, Mark Coyle, JJ Lunney, Jad Hakiki, Evan Caffrey, Brian McManus, Matty Smith, Paddy Barrett, Tyreke Wilson, Kameron Ledwidge, Sean Boyd, Shane Griffin, Keith Ward and Sean Gannon in the Shels squad for 2024.

Damien Duff, Shelbourne FC Head Coach said: “He is one of our own. As much as he wanted to go travel the world with his Love Island wingman, common sense has prevailed. Shane has incredible ability and is part of the DNA of this club. We will continue to put big demands on Shane as we know he has so much to give us. UTFR.”

Shane Farrell said: “Tolka Park feels like home to me, Shels has been such a big part of my life and I’m delighted to be here again for 2024. The club has come on so much since I came back in 2017, it’s amazing to see. It’s on a really positive path and I’m honoured to represent the Reds and can’t wait for next season”.
