Derry City and Strabane District Council is to write to former Tyrone GAA Mickey Harte and wish him all the best after he recently stepped down from the role.

Harte was manager of the Tyrone senior team for 18 years.

He led the team to three All-Ireland titles, in 2003, 2005 and 2008.

Harte, who is regarded as one of the GAA's most successful ever managers, announced last month that he was stepping down as Tyrone manager.

Ulster Unionist councillor Derek Hussey paid tribute to Harte's commitment to all sports in the county
