Mayo GAA has confirmed Kevin McStay has been appointed as the county's new senior football manager.

McStay takes over from James Horan, who handed in his notice following Mayo's defeat to Kerry in this year's All-Ireland quarter-final.

Confirming the news on Monday evening, Mayo GAA tweeted: "Kevin McStay ratified as new Mayo GAA senior football manager following a meeting of the Mayo GAA executive committee and Mayo GAA county board this evening in Castlebar."

The county board said McStay has been brought on for a four-year term.

McStay previously managed the Roscommon senior team, as well as club side St Brigid's, and is understood to have assembled a management team made up of former Mayo boss Stephen Rochford, ex-Mayo coach Donie Buckley, his old Roscommon and Brigid's coach Liam McHale and ex-Belmullet manager Damien Mulligan.
