Mayo's Aileen Gilroy has signed for the North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos for the 2020 AFLW season.

The 27-year-old, who played in last weekend's All-Ireland semi-final defeat to Galway, is the club’s third and final rookie signing for next year.

Gilroy also played for the Republic of Ireland Under 17's and Under 19's.

 

North AFLW recruiting manager Rhys Harwood said: “From the first time we were able to watch her play, Aileen’s power, speed, and ability to break the lines off half-back and through the midfield were hard to ignore.

“Aileen has been a top-level athlete in Ireland for a significant period of time.

“Her experience and professionalism will add to our group both on and off the field, and we couldn’t be more excited to have her at North Melbourne.”
