Micko Dwyer is a treasure to Laois football fans and a January RTE aired a documentary that tugged on our heart strings.  

The documentary looked back on the Laois’ championship fro 2003, the glory days. 

He’ll forever be a hero in Laois. 


The Mick O’Dwyer documentary aired on RTE last night and evoked an emotional response from Laois people.

The Kerry native guided Laois to their last Leinster football championship win in 2003.

However, he departed after the 2006 season and many now look back on his reign with mixed feelings.

Some believe that it was a period of underachievement where Laois, who had won two All-Ireland minor championships in the late 90s, had a seriously talented team that only managed one title.

Many felt that Laois should have won more but others laid the blame for that at the door of the players rather than Micko.

Check out the best of the reaction below:
