THE death has taken place of Johnny Morrison, former coach to the Mayo senior football squad.
He served alongside manager Mickey Moran when Mayo reached the All-Ireland SFC final against Kerry in 2006.
In a statement this afternoon, the Mayo GAA County Board said it was saddened to learn of the passing of the legendary coach.
"He was a huge influence in the Mayo team getting to the All-Ireland final in 2006. He will be sadly missed by all those who encounted him."
Sympathy is extended to the Morrison family on their loss.
He was a former manager with Antrim and served in a coaching capacity with Armagh, Derry, Donegal and Leitrim.
May his gentle soul rest in peace.
