Mayo GAA mourns death of former coach

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.
