Another Star Of Dundalk's Historic Europa League Campaign Leaves The Club

Another Star Of Dundalk's Historic Europa League Campaign Leaves The Club

Ciaran Kilduff, a crucial part of Dundalk's historic Europa League campaign last season has left the club.

The Kildare native has joined NASL side Jacksonville Armada in Florida. He spent two years at Oriel Park, and will be best remembered for his goals in last season's Europa League against AZ Alkmaar and Maccabi Tel-Aviv.

Kilduff's departure means he joins the likes of Daryl Horgan, Andy Boyle and Ronan Finn as players who have already left since last season's historic campaign.

Speaking to Dundalk's website on the announcement of the move, he said was delighted to be part of such a memorable time with the club.

I am just really happy to have been a part of something which has been so great. There was so many great nights and moments for us. To be part of it is something that I will always be proud of....

I think people will look back in years to come, look at this group, even the ones who are still there now and realise that this was a very special time to be a part of Dundalk FC. It still is....

Dundalk has been an amazing story in Irish football in the last five-six years from where they came from to where they are now. I am just so happy and proud to have been part of it.

Kilduff's move to America comes as the team look set to relinquish their Premier Division title. On Saturday night, Stephen Kenny's side drew 1-1 with Sligo Rovers and now lie 17-points behind Cork City.

Last year's Europa League campaign seems like an awful long time ago now for the Louth club. Kilduff's name will always be associated with the historic nights though.
