Knockbridge man Kevin Mulholland has been appointed physio for the Irish senior international soccer team. 

The 35-year-old, who works with English Premier League side Southampton as a performance and injury prevention guru, served under new boss Stephen Kenny with the Ireland U21s.

Mulholland has previously worked for Stoke City and Sheffield Wednesday, and had a short stint with the Boys in Green under Giovanni Trapattoni some years back. 

Former Dundalk FC assistant Ruaidhri Higgins has been named opposition analyst and scout in Kenny's new regime after his departure from Oriel Park was confirmed earlier this evening.

The Democrat sat down with Kevin last year to discuss his career.
