“Connor is going to be a big loss for us and was really good so far this year. He is a great lad to have around the place.

“I’m sorry to see him go because he gives us a real attacking outlet as he is really quick and you can play him out wide as well. He has chipped in with a few goals this season.

“He is a big loss and you could see it down in Wexford even as the game opened up he was a loss as well. We wish him well and I hope he goes on to have a good career for himself.

Limerick FC face Shelbourne at the Markets Field this coming Friday with the game kicking off at 7.45 pm.

Tommy also speaks about the big month ahead for the team as they try to retain a play off spot and the influence that his young players can have in the final 10 games.
