Dylan is a pacy wide man who has played on both flanks during his career, but he featured on the right wing during his time with Dundalk.
Born in Dublin, Dylan starred for his home city club Bohemians after being spotted playing local football for Johnstown. He subsequently had spells with Home Farm and Shelbourne, before joining Ipswich Town four years ago. After returning to Ireland, Dylan’s impressive wing displays for Bray Wanderers attracted the interest of Dundalk, who signed him in the summer of 2017.
Capped by Ireland Under-21s, Dylan was a part of the Dundalk squad that won the SSE Airtricity League title and the FAI Cup last year. Connolly made 51 appearances in all competitions for Dundalk and found the net on eight occasions, including the winner away to Levadia Tallinn in the UEFA Europa League last summer.
