But he will be released for Bohs’ game against Finn Harps on Friday May 31.

McCarthy said: “We’ve brought in James Talbot due to his recent form with Bohemians.

“Our goalkeeping coach Alan Kelly had been keeping an eye on the lad and he has done very well.

“We are happy to release him to play for his club. I’ve spoken to Keith Long and he’s been very supportive. And he’s delighted for James.

“We understand it’s an important time for Bohemians but equally this is a great opportunity for James to come in with us.”
