Horan resigns after defeat to Kerry

Jimageames Horan has stepped down from his role as manager of the Mayo Footballers.

His resignation comes just hours after Mayo were beaten in an epic All-Ireland semi final replay by Kerry this evening.

Horan had been in the job since 2010, leading Mayo to two All-Ireland finals, where they lost to Donegal in 2012 and to Dublin last year.

Kerry reached the All-Ireland Final this evening with a 3-16 to 3-13 win over Mayo after extra time in their All-Ireland Semi Final Replay in Limerick.
