Cork City FC are delighted to announce that Mark O’Mahony has signed his first professional contract with the club.
The striker joined the club in 2019 from Carrigaline United, and he told CorkCityFC.ie that he was very pleased to have put pen to paper: “I am absolutely thrilled to have signed my first professional contract. I would like to thank all of my coaches who have helped me along the way, from my time with Carrigaline United, to the coaches here at Cork City who have helped me along since I joined the academy. I want to continue working hard and keep improving, and am looking forward to the season ahead.”
City’s Head of Academy, Liam Kearney, welcomed the news, saying: “We are delighted that Mark has signed his first professional with the club. He is a huge talent, and has performed excellently at both club and international level, both Under 17s and 18s, over the last year. Mark is another academy player that we have now put on a professional contract, which is something that we as a club want to do, so we are very pleased with the progress we have made in this area over the last twelve months. Mark is a great lad, with a great character and he epitomises what we are all about in the Cork City FC Academy, so we are all very pleased for him.”
