Martin Cunniffe has resigned as manager of the Leitrim senior hurlers.

Cunniffe has been in charge of the side since 2011.

They won the Lory Meagher Cup this year by beating Lancashire after extra-time by 2-23 to 2-22 in a thrilling match in Croke Park.

Cunniffe told Ocean FM that he was happy to stand aside but felt aggrieved by events at a county board meeting where an issue of supposed unrest in the camp among players was raised.
