This is  Corcoran’s third spell at Bohemians after two years away with Sligo Rovers and St Patrick’s Athletic respectively.

MANAGER’S NOTES: “He didn’t play much this year with St Pat’s but Dinny had a good year with Sligo in 2015. He really feels at home at Dalymount – he’s delighted to be back. He’s an excellent professional and I’m really looking forward to working with him.”

MANAGER’S NOTES: “Greg comes back to the club a lot more experienced now with three seasons in the First Division under his belt. He will provide good competition for Shane Supple.”

Doyle was Shelbourne’s Player of the Year in 2016 having joined from UCD where he played in all four of the Students’ Europa League games in 2015.
MANAGER’S NOTES: “Jamie can play left-wing or up front. I was really impressed with him when he was with UCD and he’s another player we looked at signing last year. It’s a big step-up from the First Division but we’re confident he can make it. He’s 6ft 3in but for a big lad, he’s got good feet and is comfortable on the ball.”
