The Ladies Gaelic Football Association has led the tributes to Carnacon founder and manager Jimmy Corbett who has passed away.

Corbett founded the Mayo club in 1986, and oversaw one of the most dominant periods in All Ireland Club Championship history.

Carnacon were crowned All Ireland champions for the first time in 2002, and then on five more occasions between then and 2017.

They've also won 20 county championships, and 16 Connacht titles.

Corbett also helped develop some of the country's finest ever players, including Cora Staunton.

His loss to Carnacon and Mayo has been described as "incalculable".
