Tributes have been paid to former Leitrim assistant manager John Morrison today following his death.

He served alongside Mickey Moran in Leitrim from 2009 to 2011.

A highly respected coach, the Armagh native worked with seven inter-county teams - Armagh, Antrim, Donegal, Derry, Mayo, Leitrim and Cavan and also managed the Monaghan ladies senior team.

John's popularity throughout the county was evident from the number of tributes, from all counties, posted following the announcement of his death.
