Kevin Walsh has stepped down as Galway football manager, saying he was 'honoured' to be able to leave football in the county in 'a better place'.


The Tribesmen won two Connacht titles during his five years in charge and contested two other provincial finals.


Walsh also led the team to last year's National Football League final and All-Ireland semis, losing both games to Dublin.


Galway exited the Championship against their neighbours Mayo in the qualifiers this year.


In a statement, Galway County Board have thanked Walsh for his 'tremendous dedication' and for putting 'professional structures' in place.
