The funeral of the renowned and much-loved football coach John Morrison will take place in Armagh today and his family have asked those attending to wear either their club or county colours.
It would be a fitting tribute to a man who wasn't like any other coach and was noted for his innovative thinking. John managed Antrim and had coaching stints in his native Armagh, Derry, Donegal, Mayo, Leitrim and Cavan.
He was probably best known for his association with Mickey Moran, with whom he took Mayo to an All-Ireland final in 2006 after a memorable semi-final win over Dublin.
