About Mark Griffin  

Mark is a striker who joined the Dundalk youth team in August 2008 from local club Muirhevnamor. He was called up to the Dundalk first-team squad by Sean Connor in 2009 and was named as a substitute on a number of occasions before finally making his senior debut on the last day of the '09 season, coming on as a second-half sub in a 2-1 defeat by Derry City at Oriel Park.

Mark didn't make any league appearances in 2010, although he did sit on the bench on four occasions. and was limited to one appearance from the bench in an FAI Cup game against Mervue United. But 2011 saw his breakthrough at Oriel Park as he scored eight league goals in 21 league appearances for the Lilywhites. He cemented his reputation the following year, netting five times in 17 league appearances, leaving the club at the end of 2012 for pastures new.

In February 2013 Mark signed for Declan Devine at Derry City and made his club debut in a Setanta Cup tie against Drogheda United at the Brandywell on 4 March 2013. He made his league debut four days later on the opening night of the 2013 league season and went on to score three times in 22 league appearances (ten from the bench) as Derry finished fourth in the Premier Division.

In January 2014 Mark returned to Dundalk.
