  • Galway United have announced the signing of Mayo's Gary Boylan.

    The 24-year-old joins the Tribesmen after a year playing Gaelic football with Belmullet.

    Gary Boylan came through the academy system at the Showgrounds and the versatile defender, who has also featured in midfield, spent five seasons with Sligo Rovers, where he made over 100 appearances in the Premier Division.

    The former Irish under-21 international went on to sign for John Caulfield at Cork City, but his appearances were limited on Leeside due to a knee injury.

    The Galway manager says he's thrilled to add a player of Boylan's quality and experience to his squad for 2021.
