Bohemians have completed the signing of Ciaran Kelly from St Patrick's Athletic.

The 21-year-old defender started his career at St Pat's, making his debut against Dundalk in October 2016, before moving to Drogheda United in January 2018.

He returned to Inchicore at the conclusion of that year's First Division campaign.

He made 25 league appearances in the Premier Division last season.

Bohemians manager Keith Long welcomed the new arrival to Dalymount Park.

"We welcome Ciarán to the club. I believe he's going to be a great addition to our squad," said the Bohs boss.

"He’s young, he’s hungry and we are looking forward to working with him."
