The Cashel native has confirmed that he will be playing with the Sky Blues next year, and insisted that Dublin under Anthony Daly are very much a team on the rise.

O'Dwyer (24) attended a players' meeting on Thursday, having been in regular contact with Daly and Dublin selector Richie Stakelum, a Tipperary native, in recent weeks.

O'Dwyer admitted that it's difficult to leave his home club Cashel King Cormacs, but has decided to take the plunge after taking up employment as a schoolteacher in Templeogue.

It is believed that O'Dwyer's new club in the capital will be Kilmacud Crokes, with the switch currently being completed.

O'Dwyer, who can operate across the half-forward line, and at centre-back, said: "Whatever about changing counties, changing clubs was the biggest decision. They're the lads I grew up with, but I know that they will stick behind me. It wasn't an easy decision and I've been mulling over it for a couple of months."
