GAA World Reacts To Absolutely Enthralling ‘Micko’ Documentary

In contemporary times, the word ‘legend’ is often thrown around – but in the case of Mick O’Dwyer, a simple word like ‘legend’ doesn’t do him justice. He’s far more than just a legend. 

“Wasn’t I lucky to be born in Kerry”, he remarked at the beginning of the documentary. But, really, it was Kerry and the whole GAA community who were the lucky ones.

Throughout his prosperous playing career with Kerry, Mick O’Dwyer won 4 All-Irelands, 11 Munster titles, and 7 National Football Leagues. Like his playing career, the Kerry legend enjoyed a management career that was just as, if not more successful, than his already illustrious playing career.

Throughout his management career, he guided Kerry to 8 All-Irelands, and famously brought Leinster titles home to Kildare twice, and Laois once.

The GAA world have reacted to the thrilling documentary that was aired on RTE tonight via Twitter and soon after, he was trending on the platform with fans from all corners tweeting about him:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I did everything I wanted to do, I got great enjoyment out of it, and I wouldn’t change it for the world”, and how grateful the GAA world are for his incredible service to the sport.
