Ellen Molloy

Ellen Molloy made the step up to senior football this year and hasn’t looked back. After being promoted from the Under 17’s, the 16-year old Wexford Youths starlet enjoyed a breakthrough season for both club and country.


Molloy enjoyed a fine season with Wexford, scoring eight goals in the Women’s National League and she picked up the Young Player of the Season as a result of her quality performances.


The former Thomastown United player, who can play across midfield, was a key player in the Wexford setup and earned her first senior international call-up from Vera Pauw as a result.

Molloy broke into the Republic of Ireland international squad as part of the EURO 2021 qualifying campaign, earning her debut in for the Girls In Green against Ukraine.


A fantastic breakthrough season for the talented footballer who appears to have the world at her feet. With vision, strength, physicality and temperament to back up her exceptional talent, the ceiling appears to be limitless for the Kilkenny native.
