Tyrone ladies manager Gerry Moane has stepped down after five years in charge.

The decision comes after heavy All-Ireland SFC defeats to Armagh and Mayo, and three days after coach Barry Grimes said that he was quitting.

"I have decided to step down as senior team manager today," said Moane, who guided the Red Hands to the All-Ireland Intermediate title in 2018.

"From humble beginnings in January 2016 with just 16 players in the squad, we have gone on a great journey for these five years creating wonderful memories that we will never forget, culminating in winning the 2018 All-Ireland title and getting Tyrone back to senior football. That was always our target."

Tyrone LGFA chairperson Donna McCrory thanked Moane and his management team and said that the hunt for a successor would begin immediately.

"The process of discussing the appointment of a new manager will begin right away."
