John O'Sullivan signs

Bohemians are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder John O’Sullivan.

The 28-year-old joins from Accrington Stanley and brings with him a wealth of experience having played in the English Football League at Championship, League One and League Two level as well as in the Scottish Premiership.

In all, he made 245 first-team appearances during his time in Britain since making his first-team breakthrough with the Blackburn Rovers in 2013 having progressed through their academy that he joined as a 15-year-old in 2009.

Subject to international clearance, the former Ireland U21 international will be eligible to play when the transfer window opens on July 1.

Welcoming O’Sullivan to Dalymount Park, manager Keith Long said:

“I believe John will be a fantastic addition to our squad.

“At 28, he is coming to us with over a decade behind him in Britain where he has consistently played at a high level in the EFL.

“He has played nearly 250 games in England and Scotland and that will obviously bring us vital experience that will help our team.

“It’s a new challenge for John at a good age and we are delighted to have him at the club.”

Meanwhile, Bohemians wish to thank Sam Packham and Ryan Cassidy and wish them all the best for the future after their loan spells from Brighton and Watford respectively come to an end.
