Former Kilkenny minor hurling captain Darragh Joyce has signed a one-year extension to his contract with Brisbane Lions. It will keep him at the AFL club until at least the end of the 2024 season.

Joyce joined Brisbane ahead of this season after six years with St Kilda. The 26-year-old played five times for Brisbane adding the to 13 AFL appearances he made while at St Kilda.

"I am delighted to re-sign with the Brisbane Lions and at such an exciting time for the Club," said Joyce.

"I was rapt to join the Lions in the off-season and continue my AFL career, and I am again extremely grateful to have the opportunity to play for the club again in 2024.

"I have loved my time with Brisbane so far and now look forward to hopefully finishing this season strongly in the finals and then getting to work ahead of next year."

Dubliner James Madden and Tyrone All-Ireland winner Conor McKenna are teammates of Joyce's at Brisbane.

"Darragh has fitted into our Club, on and off the field, seamlessly and we are thrilled to have him remaining with the Brisbane Lions for another season," said Lions general manager Danny Daly.

"From the day he arrived he has done everything we have asked of him and that showed by playing five AFL games early in the season.


"Darragh has been important for us in the VFL as a defender and a key reason why we are playing in a Preliminary Final in the VFL this weekend.

"We look forward to seeing what he can achieve for the rest of this season and in 2024 after having another pre-season under his belt."

Joyce, who hails from Rower-Inistioge, captained Kilkenny to victory in the 2014 All-Ireland minor hurling final against Limerick.
