Listen: Ryan reflects on Glittering Career

In 1998, Limerick native Bobby Ryan embarked upon a League of Ireland career which spanned over 14 years and yielded two Premier Division titles. Ryan played with Limerick FC, Galway United, Bohemians, Shelbourne, Dunfermline and St. Patrick’s Athletic and was feared by many left-backs up and down the country.

The former Limerick FC man admits it was big step for him into League of Ireland football, especially as he had joined his hometown club directly from youth football.

“It was an eye opener straight away because I never played a season at junior level. I went straight from minor to senior soccer as we managed to get a second year at minor level as there was a change in the age group. I played with Limerick under Dave Connell. I remember going out to UL on the first night and tying in with the lads. The training was tougher, and the senior lads were all nice lads. It was a good start.”
