NEXT Saturday will be a special day for Mick O'Dwyer as his life-size bronze statue will be unveiled in his native Waterville.

Aimed at recognising his outstanding achievements on the GAA fields of Kerry and beyond over the past 57 years, the statue will be unveiled by one of Kerry's protégés, Jimmy Deenihan, Minister for Arts, Heritage and Gaeltacht Affairs.

It was designed by renowned sculpture, Alan Hall.
