Galway WFC have announced that Mayo woman Abbiegayle Ronayne has signed with them for the 2022 season.

After an excellent 2021 WNL season in goal for Athlone Town AFC, the Irishtown native returns to the Tribeswomen, where she previously featured for underage and senior sides.

Ronayne began her career with Sligo Rovers under 17 team in 2018 before signing for the Tribeswomen ahead of the 2019 season.

She was the first choice goalkeeper for Galway’s under 17 side as they claimed a league and cup double in 2019.

Her performances earned her a senior debut under then manager Billy Clery with the Mayo native making her debut against DLR Waves that season.

The goalkeeper spent the 2020 season with Galway as second choice behind Amanda Budden – who has since gone on to win the WNL title with Shelbourne this past season – and Ronayne departed the Tribeswomen for Athlone Town for the 2021 season.

Ronayne is the third player to be announced by the Tribeswomen in recent days, with Shauna Brennan and Kate Slevin both re-signing for the club.

The Tribeswomen begin their season with a trip to Cork City on Saturday, the 5th of March.
