Glin Native Karl O’Sullivan re-signs for Finn Harps

Former Limerick FC player Karl O’Sullivan has signed for Finn Harps for the 2021 Airtricity League Premier Division campaign. O’Sullivan spent last season with Harps as they avoided relegation from an unlikely position following a strong finish.

A final day victory over Waterford FC allowed the Donegal outfit to escape the dreaded promotion/relegation play-off, although as Limerick soccer fans know to their considerable cost, the club had become masters at play-off successes in recent seasons.

Speaking to Finnharps.ie, manager Ollie Horgan was happy to secure the services of Karl for another season.

“Karl is a good lad with a lot of talent. He was unlucky with a couple of knocks last year that kept him out of a few games especially towards the end of the season. Hopefully now he can get a good preseason under him and that will set him up well for the year ahead. We’re delighted he’s decided to re-sign with the club.”

O’Sullivan pointed to the influence of both Horgan and his assistant Paul Hegarty and praised both men for the environment at the club upon re-signing.

“Ollie and Paul took a chance on me last year and gave me an opportunity to play in the Premier Division again so I owe them a lot. Overall, the players, staff and everyone at the club make you feel very welcome and I’m looking forward to pushing on again this year.”
