Sinead Farrelly ends Republic of Ireland career

Written by on April 29, 2024

Sinead Farrelly has retired from international football after one year as part of the Republic of Ireland squad.

The United States-born midfielder made her debut in April 2023 and played in eight games overall, including all three of the group matches at the 2023 World Cup and in three Nations League fixtures.

The 34-year-old, who qualified for the Republic of Ireland through her Cavan-born father, plays for NJ/NY Gotham in the National Women’s Soccer League – the top tier of the women’s game in the US.

“It is with a tremendous amount of sadness that I’ve made the difficult decision to retire from international football,” said Farrelly.

“I’d like to thank Vera Pauw and Eileen Gleeson, all of the backroom and support staff, every player who I was proud to call a team-mate and, of course, the amazing Irish supporters who welcomed me with open arms.

“To play for Ireland was a dream that came true and it is an experience that I will cherish forever.

“I got to play in a World Cup but more than that I got to play for this country and I’m just so grateful for having that opportunity because it is one of the greatest honours of my career.”

Republic of Ireland manager Eileen Gleeson thanked Farrelly for her efforts and wished her the “very best in her career going forward”.
