CORK CITY manager Neale Fenn has confirmed that winger Dáire O’Connor has left the club.

Wicklowman O’Connor, signed by John Caulfield from UCD at the beginning of the 2019 season, had featured little for City since action resumed after the lockdown but he had started the club’s last two SSE Airtricity League Premier Division games, against Finn Harps and St Patrick’s Athletic.

However, along with Dylan McGlade, he was substituted after 32 minutes against Pat’s and that proved to be his last action for the Rebel Army.

“I just had a chat with Dáire and explained that the chances of him playing over the next few games are going to be quite slim,” said Fenn.

“We decided it was best if he moved on and went elsewhere.”

However, while there had been rumours of more departures, Fenn confirmed that nobody else is leaving.

“I don’t think that anyone else will be leaving the club at this stage,” he said.

City’s next outing is a trip to face second-placed Bohemians on Friday night.

“They’re a good team,” he said, “really well-organised, well-coached and it’s a tough game.

“But we can’t be too concerned about other teams, we have to focus on getting our own house in order and giving better performances.

“Hopefully, we can do that on Friday.”
