ALBION'S Premier League Scholar of the Year for 2016/17, Dara O'Shea made the switch from Dublin-based St Kevin's Boys to the Baggies Academy at the age of 16.
Originally a gaelic footballer, central-defender Dara has featured predominantly for Albion's under-18 side since his arrival at The Hawthorns.
But the youngster has also represented the Baggies' Premier League 2 side, scoring a phenomenal goal away at West Ham United in October.
After impressing at Hereford in the first half of the 2017/18 season, his loan deal was extended to stay with Peter Beadle's team until the end of the campaign.
