Speaking to dundalkfc.com after putting pen-to-paper on a fresh one year deal, he was understandable pleased to sign on again for 2019.
“I am delighted to get the deal done. I have been here four years now and it has been great. I am delighted to be staying on again.
“All in all I am very happy. It was an easy decision to stay. The way things have been going here it has been great and you’d be hopeful that will continue.
“I am delighted to be part of that future here.”
The Meath native has indeed enjoyed huge success at the Club since he signed in 2014 and he is hoping for more success with a third title within touching distance.
“You are hoping that you will win trophies when you sign and the Club had won the league the previous year. We have been in contention every year so far. We were disappointed last year.
“We are in a good place at the moment. We have a Cup final to look forward to. I’d fancy us to get a point from our last four games. It is within reach now the title.
“We have a good game tomorrow and we want to get across that finish line. Looking ahead we don’t know our opponents in the final but it’s great to have that to look forward to. “
