Boost For Dublin As 'Slim, Trim' Rory O'Carroll Returns To Panel

Rory O'Carroll is once again part of the Dublin football panel.

The Irish Independent's Colm Keys reports that the Kilmacud Crokes player was due to take part in a gym session with the team on Monday night.

The three-time All-Ireland winner returned to Ireland permanently in March after spending time in New Zealand. He last played for Dublin in the 2015 All-Ireland final victory over Kerry.

The 29-year-old played for Kilmacud Crokes in both of their Dublin SFC games against Ballymun Kickhams and Na Fianna this month.

"I watched Rory a couple of weeks ago in the first round of the Dublin Championship and he looks every bit a county footballer still," Sky Sports analyst Senan Connell told Balls last week.


Slim, trim, good on the ball, energetic, organising and playing with a lot of intent.

Dublin's bid for a fifth consecutive All-Ireland title gets underway late next month with a Leinster quarter-final against either Louth or Wexford.
