EXPERIENCED Mark Walsh has been unveiled as Treaty United captain for the new season, which opens with a League of Ireland First Division tie against Cobh Ramblers at the Markets Field on Friday (7.45pm).

The Nenagh man was in the starting line-up for Treaty’s first ever competitive Senior Men’s game in March of 2021 and has been an important player for the club ever since, owing to his versatility in the roles of defensive midfielder and centre-back.

Walsh’s 70-plus competitive appearances for the club to date make him one of the club’s most loyal and experienced assets.

Manager Tommy Barrett told the club’s website: “We didn’t have to think about it too much, he’s a leader. With Mark having that bit of experience we felt that he was the right person for the role.”

Said Walsh: “I’m privileged to be named as captain of Treaty United. To lead the side is a responsibility and a trust that I take very seriously. I can’t wait to lead the team out for our Munster Derby with Cobh at home to start the new season.”

Treaty also recently changed their club colours from red back to blue, the colour “most greatly associated with the long, storied history of Senior football in Limerick,” a post on the club’s website said.
