Jonny Garrity is the new Leitrim ladies football manager.

The Tyrone native replaces Hugh Donnelly in the role, having led Fermanagh to an All-Ireland Junior Championship in 2020 and a Lidl Ladies National League Division 4 title in 2019.

Leitrim LGFA said in a statement: "Leitrim LGFA, at its County Board Meeting last night (Tuesday), ratified the appointment of Jonny Garrity as its Intermediate Team Manager for 2023. We are delighted to bring the process of selecting a person to lead the County’s Intermediate Team into competitive action for the 2023 season to a conclusion, with the appointment of the former Tyrone Minor and Fermanagh Intermediate manager to this position.

"Jonny has a wealth of managerial and coaching experience which, combined with his educational background and fitness qualifications, make him the ideal appointment. We look forward to a year of progress, as we compete in Division 4 of the Lidl National League and the TG4 Intermediate Championship.

"Jonny, from the Fintona Pearses club, will be assisted in his role by Derrygonnelly Harps man, Dermot Feely, as selector.   Additional members of the extended backroom team will be announced in due course. We are excited at the prospect of a successful and enjoyable footballing year ahead.”
