Navan goalkeeper Aaaron Shanahan has re-signed for Airtricity League side Dundalk for the third time in his career and will, initially at least, be the understudy to Peter Cherrie at Oriel Park.
This is the third time Shanahan has signed for the Lilywhites having first joined the club in 2005 when Jim Gannon was in charge and again in 2008 when John Gill was in the mangerial seat.
The 28-year-old netminder will once again team up with Stephen Kenny who signed him for Shamrock Rovers last season.
Shanahan was involved with the Hoops side that won a Leinster Senior Cup when they defeated non-league giants St Patrick's CY in the final.
Shanahan has also had spells with Kilkenny City, Longford Town, Drogheda Utd and Athlone Town.
