Bohemians sign Cork City defender on loan

Bohemians have added some much-needed defensive cover ahead of the new SSE Airtricity Premier Division season.

Aaron Barry has joined the Gypsies on loan from Cork City until July.

The 26-year-old made 20 League appearances for Cork last season.

City boss John Caulfield confirmed the news, saying: “Aaron came in last year and was involved in the squad for every game, whether on the bench or starting. He’s a great guy, trained really well and is great to have around the place.

“He obviously lost his place in the middle of last year, and he felt that he wasn’t going to be a regular and he needed game time. This move is good for Aaron, it’s good for Bohs and it’s good for us.

“Part of me wanted him to stay around but, from his point of view, he needs to be playing and we needed to make sure we looked after him the best way possible.”
