IT HAS been announced that the 78 year old, Mick O’Dwyer, is coming out of retirement to take on an advisory role with the Louth senior football team.

The Independent.ie have reported that Mick O’Dwyer has agreed to assist the Louth management for this year’s championship season.

It’s now two years since ‘Micko’ stepped down from his last position as manager of the Clare seniors which he held for just one campaign.

O’Dwyer is expected to spend time at Louth training sessions in the lead up to the ‘Wee County’s’ opening round Leinster championship match against Westmeath on Sunday May 17.

It is hoped that, O’Dwyer, can help motivate a side in free-fall who were this year relegated to Division 4 of the National League after being demoted the previous year from Division 2.

O’Dwyer knows Leinster football well, having already guided the fortunes of Kildare, Laois and Wicklow.

He achieved success with Kildare in 1998 bringing them a provincial crown along with an All-Ireland final appearance beating Kerry on the way.

A genuine legend of the game, O’Dwyer, has won four All-Irelands as a player and eight as a manager.
