St Patrick’s Athletic have signed Republic of Ireland under-21 left-back Ian Bermingham from Shamrock Rovers.

Bermingham previously played for Pat’s manager Pete Mahon at UCD.

The defender is the Inchicore club’s tenth signing for the 2010 campaign.

Gary Rogers, Andrew Haran, Damian Lynch and Stuart Byrne have resigned from last year, while Conor Sinnott joins from Wexford Youths.

Dubliner Brian Cash signs from Sligo Rovers, David McAllister makes the move from First Division side Shelbourne and Derek Pender and Gareth Coughlan leave Bray Wanderers for Richmond Park.
