“SHAUN WILL ALWAYS BE WELCOMED BACK” – CHAIRMAN
The Donegal native departed the club in July for family reasons following a three-year stay on Shannonside.
Upon his first return with Derry City, Chairman Pat O’Sullivan made the presentation, which he hopes will “provide a lasting memento” of Shaun’s time with the Superblues.
O’Sullivan, who admitted to having a “heavy heart” in allowing Shaun to leave, was full of praise for the 25-year-old, who recently became a father.
The Chairman stated: “Shaun was a fantastic servant in his time here at Limerick FC and we felt it was fitting to present him with a signed jersey on his return here with his new club.
“Shaun came to us in 2011 and throughout his three years here was among our most consistent performers on the pitch and the ultimate professional off it. He was a credit to himself and a great example to all the young players coming through.
“It was with a heavy heart that we allowed Shaun to leave in the transfer window but we understood his circumstances and given the respect he has always shown us we had no hesitation in granting him his wish.
“We again thank Shaun for his contribution to Limerick FC. He will always be remembered as one of those that helped end our long exile from the top flight of Irish football in 2012, and we wish him and his young family the very best in the future.
“He will always be welcomed back in Limerick and this presentation should provide a lasting memento for Shaun, who we hope enjoyed his time here as much as we enjoyed having him.”
