Warren O’Hora, Fuad Sule and Oscar Brennan have signed new contracts to remain at Bohemians until the end of the 2018 season.

Manager Keith Long said: “We are delighted to have secured them for next season. All three have done really well for us since breaking into the team.

“It’s important we retain our best young players. They have an affinity to the club already and we want to grow this group together at Dalymount Park.

“Hopefully this is just the start now and we can get others to commit in the coming weeks.”

Having turned down a scholarship in the United States, defender O’Hora, 18, made his league debut off the bench against St Patrick’s Athletic in June and has missed just one game since.


Concussion sustained in Monday’s win against Cork City sees the Cabra teen miss out against Bray Wanderers tomorrow but Long is confident he has a bright future ahead.

Long said: “Warren is two years with the club now having captained both the Under-17s and Under-19s.

“He’s taken the step up to first-team football in his stride and has looked very comfortable.”

Sule, 20, joined from St Patrick’s Athletic in the closed season, got his first taste of first-team football in the EA Sports Cup against Cabinteely in April and has not looked back since.

Such has been his form in the centre of the park that he was today nominated for the SSE Airtricity/Soccer Writers’ Association of Ireland July Player of the Month Award.

Brennan, 21, was one of Long’s final recruits in the closed season having joined from First Division Cabinteely and has steadily grown into a fans’ favourite in recent months.

Long added: “Fuad has deservedly gets a lot of plaudits for his performances and is another player with a big future ahead of him.

“Oscar probably doesn’t get the praise he deserves. He’s someone who gets so much of the unheralded dirty work done around midfield.

“He’s been a great asset and you only have to ask his team-mates how much they value his contribution to the team.”
