Mick O’Dwyer has been nominated by Laois county board chairman Dick Miller to return as manager
Former manager Sean Dempsey has recently left Laois following a disappointing season, which saw Laois lose to Meath in the Leinster Championship before crashing out of the All-Ireland Championship qualifiers against Tipperary.
It has now emerged that Mick O’Dwyer may be on his way back to Laois, as he has been nominated for the role of manager by county board chairman Dick Miller.
Miller told Livesport.ie, “I’ve put Micko’s name to one of the executive and I’ve no problem offering my support for him. His record in Laois speaks for itself and we haven’t been anywhere near the same level since he left. He created a great stir around the place and I reckon he’d do the same again if he came back. It needs a lift again”.
Former Laois chairman Joe O’Dwyer also declared his support for the return of Mick O’Dwyer, telling Livesport.ie earlier today “I’d welcome Micko back with open arms”. He went on to say, “We’d great times under him and he got an awful lot out of the players. I’d have no problem supporting him and I think it would improve Laois again if he came back”.
