Welcome Cian!
Third Irishman on his way:


Height: 197cm
Weight: 90kg
Position: who bloody hell knows at this point

Testing at the draft combine:
20 metre sprint: 2.99 seconds
Standing vertical jump: 87cm
2km time trial: 6 minutes 17 seconds

Raw as you get but seems to have plenty of tools to make a go of it. Good luck young fella!

Would be a while since I've seen the athletic traits and results of that quality. Probably not seen before

Google tells me Kee-an if that’s anything to go by, with Kean and Keane as variant spellings.

I also tried YouTube and other people called Cian being interviewed (their name is mentioned in the vid) and it’s Kee-an there too. 🤔

Irish Shaun is Sean.

Also, I am hoping one of these irish guys is a genuine ranga forward because we will not win a flag without one.
Franga? Redman? Phillips?

In all seriousness, i believe the other irish recruit, McQuillan, is a red head

I hope we play all three of our McIrish at the same time, BT would lose the plot. He can’t even get McKenna right, calls him McConnor half the time.

Not to mention McGrath and McKernan.

Mc's are the new 'S' in Essendon recruiting circles so it seems
