Biography

Whelan proved impressive across the Irish Sea before signing on a year-long deal with Blues in September 2021, with the 19-year-old attacker already a full international after marking her senior debut three years ago.

She, along with Jamie Finn, is a product of Shelbourne’s youth system and at the age of 16 was named the best Under-17s player in the Women’s National League as a result of her impressive showings for the Red Pandas.

Although most recently used in forward positions, Whelan has previously displayed the versatility to perform in both midfield and defensive roles.
