DUBLIN GAA star Philly McMahon is linking up with Bohemians, the club have confirmed.

The eight-time All-Ireland winner is set to work alongside coaching duo Keith Long and Trevor Croly, after being appointed first-team performance coach.

“We are delighted to have him on board, we welcome Philly to Dalymount Park and we wish him the best of luck in his role with our backroom team,” the club tweeted.

It is not the 33-year-old Ballymun native’s first foray into soccer.

During Croly’s stint as Shamrock Rovers boss between 2012 and 2014, he was part of the backroom team, working as the Hoops’ strength-and-conditioning coach.
