Former long-serving Tyrone GAA boss Mickey Harte has been appointed the manager of the Louth GAA senior team.

Harte left his post with Tyrone earlier this month after his request for a contract extension was rejected.

He steered the Red Hands to the Sam Maguire Cup in 2003, 2005 and 2008 during an 18-year spell in charge.

Harte has agreed a three-year contract with Louth, he will be joined by his former Tyrone assistant Gavin Devlin.

In a statement Louth GAA said: "Louth GAA are delighted to announce the appointment of Mickey Harte as our new senior football team manager on a three-year term.
