City sign Rachel O'Regan & Niamh O'Donoghue

Cork City FC are delighted to announce the signings of Rachel O'Regan and Niamh O'Donoghue for our SSE Airtricity Women's National League Squad. O'Regan, who left City in 2019, returns to the club after a spell with Carrigaline, while O'Donoghue joins from Lakewood Athletic.

Speaking this morning in Bishopstown after returning to the club, O'Regan said: "I'm delighted to get the opportunity to be back playing for Cork City and I’m really looking forward to the rest of the season with the girls. I’m just going to keep my head down, work hard in training every week to try and improve my football and hopefully get a spot on the starting team in the future. I’m just happy to be involved again and I’m looking forward to the upcoming games!"

Niamh O'Donoghue also spoke of her excitement after signing for City: "I am very excited about the challenges that lay ahead with Cork City and I am looking forward to contributing to the continuing development of the squad and the successful progression of the club both on and off the pitch.

I am very grateful to Paul and the coaching staff at City for providing me with this opportunity to play football at the highest level of women’s football in Ireland. I would also like to thank everyone at Lakewood AFC, my club since the age of 6, who have played a big part in my football life and continue to do great work in the encouraging young girls to play football."

Speaking ahead of the announcement City boss Paul Farrell said: "I'm delighted to have the two girls in. I know both of them well, having worked with them previously, and I know what they can bring to the side. Rachel is a player that I have worked with at City before, and Niamh is a player that I know from Lakewood. We travel to Limerick tomorrow to face Treaty United, and both girls will be hoping to be involved in the matchday squad."
