2013 Squad Number 23
A right full or centre half, Ryan is considered to be a hard-working player who is strong in the tackle and good on the ball.
He first played in the League of Ireland with Bohemians until going ‘on loan’ to Shamrock Rovers in July 2005. He was signed by Rovers at the start of the 2006 season. A loan period at Longford Town followed in July 2007 to season’s end.
Dundalk manager John Gill stepped in to sign the out-of-contract Ryan at the start of the 2008 season, but having made 26 league appearances, which helped the ‘lilywhites’ win promotion to the Premier Division that season, Ryan were released by the border club. He joined local rivals Drogheda United at the start of the 2009 season and made 27 league appearances for them that season.
Ian joined Shelbourne at the start of the 2010 season.
