More Details

She is still under contract with the United States of America (USA) National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) team, Gotham FC.

The U.S.-born Ireland international Sinead Farrelly became the latest professional athlete to hang up her international football boots after the Gotham midfielder joined the Girls in Green for last summer’s Women’s World Cup.

“It is with a tremendous amount of sadness that I’ve made the difficult decision to retire from international football,” Farrelly said in a statement.

"Even though I was a latecomer to international football, it meant so much to me and my family. To pull on the Ireland jersey, sing the national anthem, and represent the Farrelly family from Cavan (and beyond) was truly special.

"I'd like to thank Vera Pauw and Eileen Gleeson, all of the backroom and support staff, every player who I was proud to call a teammate, and of course, the amazing Irish supporters who welcomed me with open arms.

"To play for Ireland was a dream that came true and it is an experience that I will cherish forever. I got to play in a World Cup but more than that I go to play for this country and I'm just so grateful for having that opportunity." She concluded.
