Limerick FC confirm signing of Daniel Kearns 

Daniel Kearns completes his Limerick FC move with the club's Academy Manager Willie Boland

LIMERICK FC completed the signing of winger Daniel Kearns this Wednesday.

Kearns played with Sligo Rovers in the season just finished but departed the club in the past week.

A former Dundalk and Peterborough United player, Kearns signed his Limerick FC contract at the club's base in Bruff this Wednesday afternoon.

Belfast born Kearns moved to West Ham as a teenager but didn’t feature for The Hammers first team before departing in 2010.

A former Republic of Ireland U-21 international, Kearns returned to play with Dundalk and in 2011 played in the League of Ireland side against Celtic in Dublin’s Super Cup.

He returned cross channel and had spells with Peterborough United, York City, Rotherham United, Chesterfield and Carlisle United. 

Before joining Sligo in the Summer of 2016, Kearns spent a season with Glenavon.

Kearns is the third new signing for Limerick FC –  striker Danny Morrissey joined from Finn Harps and Cian Coleman linked up from Cobh Ramblers.

Local heroes Shane Duggan and Shane Tracy have also signed new deals with Neil McDonald’s side.

Limerick FC have however lost midfielder Bastien Hery to Waterford and Dean Clarke is rumoured to be a target for St Patricks Athletic.
