Louth duo head Down Under
Louth football stars John O'Brien and Brian White have confirmed they will emigrate to Australia.
The pair have decided to move Down Under in search of employment.
"It's nothing to do with football or training. I have been struggling to find work for over a year, so I have no other choice," said O'Brien.
White added: "I'm going to Australia and I will see how long it lasts. When I finish my apprenticeship, I know there will be work out there.
"Hopefully when I come back, whenever that is, I will be in good shape to play, but right now it is the time to go."
