Shamrock Rovers have confirmed that Sean Gannon has left the champions upon the expiry of his current deal at Tallaght Stadium.

Gannon, 32, re-joined the Hoops ahead of the 2021 season after having a previous stint at the club earlier on during his career.

And while he failed to feature too much during his second stint in Dublin 24, he still made over 75 appearances under boss Stephen Bradley.

Gannon also won three League of Ireland Premier Division titles - and played in the Europa Conference League group stages.

“We can confirm Sean Gannon has left the Club following the expiration of his contract,” a statement from Rovers read.

“Ganno re-joined the Hoops in December 2020 and departs after achieving league title success in 2021, 2022 & 2023.

“We extend our utmost thanks and best wishes to Sean for the future.”

Meanwhile, newly-promoted Waterford have parted ways with defender Kilian Cantwell.

Cantwell, 28, played 23 times for the Blues during their promotion-winning campaign of this season.

But the defender has been informed that he is surplus to requirements at the RSC next term.

And he said: “I was informed today that I am not in the plans for next season at Waterford.

“I am deeply disappointed with the news as I have loved every second of representing this club..

“I wish the club, management and the players all the best in the Premier Division next season.

“I’m glad to have contributed to promotion this season and I’m happy to see the club back where it belongs.”
