North AFLW recruiting manager Rhys Harwood said: “From the first time we were able to watch her play, Aileen’s power, speed, and ability to break the lines off half-back and through the midfield were hard to ignore.
“Aileen has been a top-level athlete in Ireland for a significant period of time.
“Her experience and professionalism will add to our group both on and off the field, and we couldn’t be more excited to have her at North Melbourne.”
