VETERAN midfielder Dave Mulcahy has done a U-turn on his move to Cork City and has agreed to re-sign for Bohemians.

A key figure for Bohs last season, Mulcahy had planned to quit Dalymount Park and hook up with Cork City, where he lined out in the 2008 season.

But due to work reasons, the 37-year-old has had a change of heart and he will wear the read and black of Bohs next term. “With my business, it just couldn’t happen with Cork,” said the Kilkenny native after agreeing a new one-year deal with Bohs boss Keith Long.

“I’d great expectations for the season with Cork. I’m sure some Bohs fans won’t like to hear that, but at my age, it’s difficult to turn down the chance of playing European football for the last time. But when it became clear that it wasn’t going to work out, there was only one club I wanted to sign for. I’m delighted to be back.

“I’ve heard what training is like and how Keith likes his teams to play. I’m confident that we can push on from last season and aim to get higher up the table. We’d good young players at the club already and Keith has strengthened that again. We’ll see a bit more passing football this season and as the oldest lad on the team, hopefully I can make an impact on the younger lads.”

Meanwhile, Bray Wanderers, Cobh Ramblers and Athlone Town still have some hurdles to clear before they can take part in the 2015 season. The FAI have issued the club licences for next season but are seeking “further clarification” from Bray and want “further information” from Athlone and Cobh.
