Kieran McGeeney has been confirmed as Armagh's senior football manager for a third season.

The 2002 All-Ireland winning captain was ratified at a county board meeting last night, although he will no longer serve as the county's Under-21 manager.

Aidan O’Rourke will assist the former Kildare boss.

In 2016, his Armagh side exited the Ulster championship at the quarter-final stage before being narrowly beaten by Laois in Round 1 of the qualifiers.

The previous year, the Orchard County went out to Galway in Round 2.
