BOHEMIANS HAVE ANNOUNCED the departure of Dave Mulcahy, who has returned to Cork City for a second spell on Leeside.

The 38-year-old returns to Turner’s Cross after five years with Bohs and will bolster John Caulfield’s ranks as City continue to challenge on three fronts.

Mulcahy — the oldest player in the League of Ireland — spent just one season with Cork back in 2008 and made only two league appearances before moving to Bray Wanderers.

The versatile defender put pen to paper on a deal with the Rebels ahead of the 2015 season but personal reasons saw him perform a u-turn and commit his future to Bohs.

Mulcahy has featured heavily under Keith Long at Dalymount Park this season but will now head south for the remainder of the campaign.
