Sinead Farrelly started appearing on the national landscape as a member of the U-15, U-16, U-17 and U-20 U.S. National Teams.  While attending the University of Virginia she earned first team All-ACC honors four times and was named the ACC Offensive Player of the year in 2010, her senior season.  Her name can be found in many places of the school’s record books.  Her 90 games started ranks her second to new teammate Becky Sauerbrunn in school history.  She ranks eighth in school history with 84 points scored in her career and eight for most in a season with 31 (2010).

Farrelly was the number one draft pick of the Philadelphia Independence in 2011 and second pick overall.  As a rookie, Farrelly was immediately earned a spot in the lineup to strengthen the midfield and played in 14 games for the Independence, starting 13 of them, including the season opener. She scored her first goal of her WPS career in a game versus Western New York, which ended up being the game winning goal and solidified a first place standing for the Independence in mid-July.
