Biography

Ronan started his LOI career with UCD where he made his debut against Rovers in 2005 as a 17-year-old. In 2009 he captained the Students to the First Division title before joining Sporting Fingal for full time football.

After a season with Fingal who then announced they wouldn’t be playing LOI in 2011, he joined Rovers and had success in his first season with the club, winning the league title and Setanta Cup. That same year, Rovers became the first LOI club to qualify for the Europa League group stages, and Ronan played in all 12 European games that year.

In the following years he won the Setanta Cup again, scoring twice against Drogheda United, the EA Sports Cup and two Leinster Senior Cups.

He signed for Dundalk in December 2014, and won the league title in both 2015 and 2016 and the FAI Cup in 2015. In 2016 he was part of the Dundalk side that made the Europa League group stages, thus making it two times he has played at that stage of the competition. He played in all of Dundalk’s European games that campaign.

In December 2016, it was announced that ‘Finner’ would be joining Rovers for a second spell, and was made club captain. He became the first Rovers captain since Pat Byrne in 1987 to lift the FAI Cup as Rovers beat Dundalk in 2019.

He also became the first captain to lift back-to-back league titles in a decade with the 2020 and 2021 trophies.  Both on and off the pitch, the five-time league winner epitomises the club through his unrelenting work rate at both wing-back and in the middle as well as his love for the club.
