Tallaght schoolboy Joe Redmond (16) has signed with Birmingham City FC. The local lad has played for a line of notable clubs in Dublin and has most certainly got the move he deserves which will be at the West Midlands Club.
In Redmond’s early days he was a member of the well know Crumlin United side. The club was said to be the best in Ireland at their age group at the time and if not the best ever sides in recent years.
Redmond has previously played for St Joseph’s Boy’s AFC where he was extremely successful winning two All-Ireland’s and various DDSL premier league titles. Redmond has achieved so much relating to football from such a young age having been a Kennedy Cup winner, an Irish underage international and a DDSL league representative. Redmond took to Facebook to express his joy:
“I’m delighted to have signed my first contract for Birmingham city football club, it always was my boy-hood dream to play for a professional football club. Just wanted to thank everyone who has helped me get this far especially my family and friends. I can’t wait to get started and just have to keep working hard”
Additionally, there are other amazing family connections that point toward his fantastic success in that Redmond’s relations include the Republic of Ireland international and Reading FC stalwart Stephen Quinn, while Stephen’s brother’s Alan (Ipswich Town) and Keith (Sheffield United) also had very successful professional football careers.
We here at InTallaght would like to wish Joe the very best with his move to Birmingham City FC. We look forward to see him progress throughout the next few years with the new club.
