Hughie Donnelly has stepped down as Leitrim women’s intermediate football manager after three years in charge.
The Tyrone native’s departure follows Leitrim’s weekend exit from the TG4 All-Ireland intermediate football championship group stages following their third consecutive loss.
Leitrim were beaten by Wexford by 3-10 to 2-11 which left them finishing bottom of Group A.
However, as provincial champions, they are exempt from any relegation play-off.
During Donnelly’s three seasons in charge, he led Leitrim to back-to-back Connacht titles (2021 & 2022) and a Division 4 league final last year.
In a statement released on Monday, Donnelly said: “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time here with Leitrim ladies. I owe massive thanks to Aidan and PJ, along with the executive and county boards, for trusting me to rebuild the fortunes of the ladies senior team.
“We’ve now competed in a NFL league final, won back to back Connacht titles and reached the last 8 of the All Ireland intermediate championship in the space of 2 and half seasons. There is no reason that this success can’t continue.”
