Donegal Ladies senior football manager, Margaret Foy, has sensationally stepped down after less than two months in the job.
Foy, who only took up the job at the start of the year, resigned last night (Wednesday) following a meeting with the Donegal Ladies Executive Board. She confirmed in a brief text this morning that she had resigned and advised that any queries regarding the matter be directed to the Donegal Ladies Board chairman Micheal Naughton.
She also stated that she did not wish to make any further comment on the matter. Micheal Naughton confirmed that the senior manager had stepped down after a meeting with the Executive Board and that the main officers would manage the team until a new manager is appointed.
The chairman did not comment any further on the matter other than thank her for her contribution and wish her well in the future.
It is understood that the meeting between the manager and the executive was specially convened to discuss team affairs.
Donegal have lost their three opening games in Division One of Tesco Homegrown Ladies National League against Laois, Cork and Tyrone. They suffered big defeats in all three games going down to Laois by ten points, to All-Ireland champions Cork six points and Tyrone, seven points.
Donegal have four games remaining in the league starting with Dublin this Sunday, followed by Mayo the following weekend, Monaghan on March 30th (all these are home games) while they wrap up their campaign away to Kerry, on the first weekend in April.
