Two kings will reign at Rockmount for the remainder of the season as the MSL side have pulled off one of the moves of the winter transfer window.
Manager ‘King’ Billy Cronin will be joined by a former Cork City player also called ‘The King’.
George O’Callaghan has signed for the Premier Division outfit and will bring experience, goals and indeed glamour to a side currently sitting second from bottom in the Munster Intermediate top flight.
At 37 O’Callaghan’s best days may be behind him, but he certainly still has the talent and skill to make an impact at top end of the amateur spectrum.
The former Ipswich front man has been training with the Cork club for the last two weeks and the JSP has been informed he has signed. Indeed, he should be ready for selection when football returns in January.
O’Callaghan began his career with Port Vale were he made 41 appearances before returning home to Cork City in 2002.
The creative front man played 150 times for City over a five year period before he signed for Ipswich Town in the Championship. A stint with Tranmere Rovers followed before brief spells with Dundalk and Yeovil.
The crowd favourite was last seen playing in Brunei for DPMM FC and after a spell with Dover Athletic took up management in Asia with Malaysian side Sabah in 2014, but lasted only months in the role.
