The North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos have signed two-time premiership Crow Ailish Considine as a replacement player for the upcoming season.
Hailing from Ireland, Considine grew up playing Gaelic Football and camogie and represented County Clare at the highest level as a dual player.
In 2019, she joined the Adelaide Crows as their first international AFLW recruit. There the 31-year-old played 26 games across five seasons, mostly on the wing and at half-forward, and was part of the 2019 and 2022 (Season 6) premiership teams.
“We are excited to welcome another terrific person in Ailish to Arden St,” North Melbourne AFLW list manager Flynn Loft said.
“Ailish offers a wealth of experience and support to our program, and we look forward to her inclusion this season.”
Considine’s opportunity at the Kangaroos comes after fellow Irishwoman Vikki Wall was moved to the inactive list to pursue an opportunity with Ireland's women's rugby sevens program ahead of the 2024 Olympics in Paris.
