Dundalk have confirmed that Ciarán Kilduff is to depart the Louth club and join up with NASL side Jacksonville Armada. Moving to Dundalk midway through the 2015 season from St. Patrick’s Athletic, the 28-year-old slowly became a crucial attacking threat for Stephen Kenny, particularly from the bench. However, it was the 2016 season he will be most fondly remembered for by …
