John Morrison: Well-respected former Mayo coach and Antrim manager dies
John Morrison, one of GAA's most respected coaches, has died.
Morrison was Mayo coach alongside Mickey Moran when they reached the All-Ireland final against Kerry in 2006.
He also managed Antrim during a career that saw him serve on the backroom staff of home county Armagh as well as Donegal, Derry, Leitrim and Cavan.
Derry GAA described Morrison as "an inspirational man with a brilliant coaching mind who leaves us with many fond memories".
"Our thoughts are with John's family and Armagh Gaels at this time," the county said on Twitter.
Armagh Harps, a club Morrison played for and managed, said they were "shocked and saddened this morning to learn of the sudden passing of John Morrison - a former player, manager, chairman and Hall of Fame inductee".
In recent years, Morrison also managed the Monaghan ladies team.
