DONEGAL LGFA will advertise their vacant senior manager post following the news of Maxi Curran stepping down after six seasons in charge.
His decision comes in the wake of their All-Ireland exit at the hands of Dublin on Sunday in Ballybofey.
The County Board Executive are set to advertise the vacant post and hope to appoint Curran’s successor “as soon as possible”.
Donegal had a mixed season with relegation from Division One followed by an Ulster title and a promising start to the All-Ireland series including victory over back-to-back All-Ireland champions Meath.
Curran, who was part of the backroom team that helped deliver Sam Maguire in 2012, managed Donegal ladies to three Ulster titles in his tenure.
“It is with regret that Donegal LGFA County Board announce that Maxi Curran has stepped away from his role as Donegal Senior Ladies manager,” read a statement from Donegal LGFA.
“We would like to thank Maxi for his time, commitment, and dedication to Donegal Ladies Football over the past six years and wish him well in the future.”
