Ciara McCormack (born 29 September 1979) is a soccer defender who last played for the Australian W-League club Newcastle Jets and the Republic of Ireland women's national football team.

College career[edit]

McCormack won a scholarship to Yale University in 1997 and played varsity football for four years. She spent a further year at the University of Connecticut.[1]

Club career[edit]

McCormack has featured for Boston Renegades, Vancouver Whitecaps Women and Ottawa Fury in the W-League. She also played for Fortuna Hjørring in Denmark.[2] Since moving to Norway in 2008, McCormack has represented Toppserien clubs Asker Fotball, FK Larvik and Kolbotn Fotball.[3] She left Kolbotn for Donn Toppfotball in August 2010.[2]

International career[edit]

In late 2007 McCormack delayed her arrival in Norway to attend a training camp with the Canada women's national soccer team.[4]

However, McCormack first appeared for the Republic of Ireland in three friendly games against the United States in September 2008.[1] She has since played in both defence and midfield for Ireland.[5] McCormack's father Barry is from Athlone.[6]
