McKenna breaks through for Bombers debut

Europe

Essendon football club today announced that Irish code crosser Conor McKenna is upgraded from the rookie list to the senior list and will debut in the AFL this Saturday night at the MCG.

McKenna originally from Tyrone in Northern Ireland was drafted as an International Rookie last year after he was spotted by Essendon, who were one of two AFL clubs that attended the AFL's talent combine in Ireland in December 2013.  He also was invited to the National Combine in Melbourne last year.

McKenna has been a lively forward for the Bombers this season kicking 18 goals from 15 matches in Essendon's VFL team.

McKenna is the second Irishman to cross from Gaelic football to Aussie rules to play at Essendon after Michael Quinn who played 8 games at his time with the club in 2009-10.
