The former Dublin footballer served two years with the midlanders and had been thought to be keen on extending that stay but a meeting of the county's executive was told on Tuesday night that he would not be returning for a third campaign.

A statement from the midlanders confirmed that Sheedy had stepped down to "devote more time to his family".

"Longford GAA's Executive Committee thank Jack and his back-room team for their efforts over the past two years and wish them well in whatever role they decide to take up in the future.

"Jack had a successful first year with our U-21's and after a slow start at senior level brought Longford out of Division 4 this current year and has given us our longest run in the Qualifiers in a number of years.

"Jack successfully moulded a number of players to senior ranks following on from the retirement of a number of vastly experienced players.

"Once again Longford GAA wish to thank Jack, his back-room team and the many players who committed to County teams - both U-21 and senior over the course of his tenure."
