Q&A with Blues’ forward Karl Bermingham

Karl Bermingham

On Friday Q&A grabbed a quick word with Karl Bermingham after the win over Wexford Youths. Karl joined the Blues last season from Derry City, and the versatile striker has added an extra dimension to Gareth Cronin’s attacking arsenal since his arrival. The genial Dubliner, who has also had a spell at Manchester City, can operate on the right flank as well as up front, and likes to run at opposing defences. Bermo’s name is already firmly in the record books for scoring the first goal of the current season in either division, as he showed off that ability to great effect, striding forward onto a Paul McCarthy lay-off before curling it into the far corner of the Wexford Youths net with the season less than five minutes old.
