THERE’S A HUGE boost for Down fans and Gaelic Football followers in general this morning following confirmation that long-serving forward Benny Coulter has cut short his retirement.

Coulter walked away from intercounty football last year at the age of 32 but he will return to the Mourne County for the 2016 campaign.

The Mayobridge sharpshooter is a talismanic figure for his county and made his senior debut back in 2000.

He was captain in 2010 when Down contested the All-Ireland final against Cork and captured an Allstar for his exploits that season.

Coulter is a former All-Ireland minor medallist with Down and the four-time Interprovincial winner with Ulster has also represented Ireland in five International Rules series.

Here’s a reminder of what he’s all about:
