About Jason Byrne
Jason Byrne began his playing career at Bray Wanderers in 1998. He scored 49 league goals in 128 league appearances in his 5 seasons at the club, establishing himself as a real threat to opposition defences.
Byrne then signed for Shelbourne on January 12th 2003 for an estimated fee of €75,000. He became an instant success at Shels and was named PFAI player of the year in his first season as the Reds lifted the 2003 League title.
2004 saw Byrne continue where he left off scoring 25 times in 33 league games, again helping Shelbourne to the league title. He was also a key figure in Shels' Champions League run and earned himself a call up to the Ireland squad for a friendly against Poland.
Having won a third league title in 2006, Jason left Shelbourne on 17 January 2007 in a £75,000 deal that took him to Cardiff City. He then scored on his debut against Wolves in the English Championship, but at the start of the 2007/08 season his first-team chances were limited and he returned to play in the league of Ireland in 2008 with Bohemians.
After being linked with the mover for quite a while, Byrne rejoined Bohemians at the start of the 2008 season, scoring his first goal against Finn Harps in March 2008. He also scored both goals against Drogheda United in the game that clinched the 2008 title for Bohemians.
In January of 2011 Jason left a Bohemians side that was in the process of dealing with serious financial difficulties and signed for Ian Foster at Dundalk, where he scored six times in the league over 24 appearances.
2012 saw Jason return to the Carlisle Grounds, signing for Pat Devlin's Bray Wanderers fourteen years after he had first lined out for the Wicklow club.
