Cole Kiernan

Bohemians are delighted to confirm the signing of striker Cole Kiernan from Middlesbrough, subject to international clearance.

The 19-year-old spent a year with Boro’s U23s having previously been with their local rivals Sunderland where he captained the club’s U18s.

Kiernan is from nearby Hartlepool but qualifies for Ireland through his grandfather, and has previously featured in Ireland U18 squads.

Welcoming Cole to Dalymount Park, manager Keith Long said: “Cole comes to the club having been through the academy at Sunderland and more recently with Middlesbrough’s U23s.

“He will provide us with options up front and will add different qualities to help the team as we enter the last few months of the season.

“We are looking forward to working with him, and we hope that the potential he has can be realised with us in a new environment.”
