Jim Gavin has stepped down as Dublin senior football manager.

Dublin GAA said that Gavin had “informed county officers, his management team and the players that he was handing back the reins of the Dublin senior football team to the county committee.”

Dublin chairman Sean Shanley said that “Dublin GAA will be forever grateful to Jim Gavin for his dedication, commitment and contribution as a player and, since 2003, leading the next generation of players at U21 and Senior level.

“I regret his departure but appreciate the huge sacrifices he has made over this period.”
