16 Of The Best And Funniest Mick O'Dwyer Photos

As you now probably know, the legendary Mick O'Dwyer retired from football management today. Four All Irelands with Kerry as a player, eight as a manager, two Leinster titles with Kildare, one with Laois and a Tommy Murphy Cup with Wicklow; his record speaks for itself.

However, what endeared the country to him was not just his talent but also his character and humility. Here are some of his best photos.

A handsome divil in his youth

He enjoyed a good suit...

And a good technicolour jumper

An eight time All Ireland winner as manger of Kerry

 Who inspired others to follow in his footsteps


Like a master and apprentice

Micko was known to get excited

Sometimes even losing his false teeth


But that was nothing compared to the Kildare fans after they won Leinster



They really loved him

Micko was a pioneer of many things, including wearing a cap backwards

And of course, the high trousers, jersey over the jacket, farmers' cap combo

He was Harry Redknapp before Harry Redknapp

A well travelled manager, Kerry will always be his home

Until some other county try to kidnap him, that is




Away he goes. We'll miss you Mick
