BREAKING: Paddy Carr steps down as Donegal manager

DONEGAL are on the lookout for a new manager after Paddy Carr stepped down “with immediate effect” after discussions with members of the Donegal senior football team.

“Following a discussion with some senior members of the Donegal football team, I want to announce that I’m stepping away from the position of Donegal team Manager with immediate effect,” read a statement released by Donegal GAA.

“I want nothing more than the best for Donegal and that will never change.

”Carr took over from Declan Bonner who stepped down at the end of last season.

Donegal are on the cusp of relegation with one game left the weekend, an away clash with Roscommon.

Donegal need an unlikely set of results to stay up.

That would include a win over Roscommon, Tyrone beating Armagh and a draw between Mayo and Monaghan. After that, they’d still need a massive points difference swing so it’s the second division and a rebuilding process, it would appear.
