Mick Haughney was a famous footballer from County Laois.

Nicknamed "Cutchie", Mick was a native of the Carlow border town of Graiguecullen.

He played at corner forward when Laois won Leinster titles in 1936, ’37 and ’38, but captained the O’Moore County side from midfield to Leinster Senior Football Championship glory against Kildare in 1946.

Laois didn't win the Leinster Senior Football Championship again until 2003 when Mick O'Dwyer led them to victory.

Haughney also won 10 Laois Senior Football Championship medals with Graiguecullen. He emigrated to the US in 1949 and only returned to live in Ireland during the mid-1990s.

Haughney died in September 2006, aged 91.
