Paul Galvin confirms football comeback and he has chosen a Dublin club

This should be fun

At 37, and in decent nick, Paul Galvin could still do some damage at club level.

The former Kerry captain had been keeping coy on a return to club football but two loveable DJs squeezed the truth from him during a radio appearance this morning.

Galvin was on Today FM’s Dermot and Dave Show this morning and, after talking a while about his new line of clothing with Dunnes Stores, he revealed he would be playing for North Dublin side St Oliver Plunkett’s.

“I’m still able to do in the gym what I could do two or three years ago,” he commented before dismissing comparisons with Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

As for joining the same club side as Alan and Bernard Brogan, he said:

“Yeah, I’m going to play a bit in Dublin this year, with Plunkett’s out in Cabra.

“I’m friends with a few of the boys there and there are people from home involved at board level. They are good lads and they have a very good manager.”

As for the hurling, Galvin sacked it off with a resound “Nahh.”

If Galvin still feels he can make a difference, it will be interesting to see how he goes.
