Jim Gavin has stepped down as Dublin Senior Football manager after an impressive seven seasons at the helm of the Boys in Blue.

During his tenure Dublin won 6 All-Ireland titles, were only defeated once in championship football and completed the first five-in-a-row in the senior men’s game.

Throughout his time involved with the Dubs, Mayo never defeated his charges in League or Championship, but drew on several occasions.

Some of the most devastating losses suffered by the green and red against Gavin included the 2013 All-Ireland final, the 2015 All-Ireland semi-final replay, the 2016 All-Ireland final and replay and the 2017 All-Ireland final.

The professionalism Gavin brought to the Dublin set up in selection, tactics, team ethic, backroom team and work-rate, particularly post-Donegal 2014, has seen them become the most successful team in Gaelic football.
