Donegal senior football manager John Joe Doherty has tendered his resignation to the Donegal County Board.

The news comes as no surprise following a string of poor results. Doherty took up the role in November 2008, but has stepped down after his team’s disappointing defeat to Armagh in the All-Ireland qualifiers on Saturday evening.
