NIAMH McEvoy retired from AFLW after two seasons with Melbourne Demons.

The 30-year-old, who has won All-Ireland medals with Dublin in the past four seasons, has played eight games in two years for the Melbourne Club.

Last year, McEvoy and Dublin teammate Sinéad Goldrick played the first part of a season that went unfinished after the outbreak of the pandemic that forced the AFLW to abandon its finals series. </ The pair was joined by Lauren Magee, another member of Mick Bohan's all-conquering Dublin team that year, although McEvoy struggled to break into the demon side this year and spent time with the VFLW Club Casey.

All three are expected to compete for Dublin to win a fifth Brendan Martin Cup later this year.

« The competitiveness, professionalism and experience that Niamh has gained from her hugely successful Gaelic football His career in Ireland has brought tremendous benefits to our group over the past two seasons, « said Daniel McPherson, Melbourne AFLW boss.

 » We should never underestimate what players like Niamh are sacrificing when they travel to Australia to take part in our AFLW competition. «
