Armagh appoint new minor boss

ARMAGH All-Ireland winner Aidan O’Rourke has been ratified as the county’s new minor football manager.

As reported by Gaelic Life, O’Rourke was the frontrunner to take over from outgoing boss Brendan Hughes.

The Dromintee man was appointed at Monday night’s meeting of Armagh GAA and will lead a management team of Stefan Forker (Maghery), Chris McCarron (Wolfe Tones) and Pat McGeough (Forkhill).

O’Rourke, an Ulster minor winner in 1994, stepped down from his role as Donegal interim manager at the end of last season.

He has experience at county level as Louth manager, while also coaching Down and Kildare.

The county’s hurling management teams were also ratified for the new season.

Karl McKeegan, Jackie Carson and Miceal Murphy stay on board with the seniors with the u-20 and u-17 teams under the guidance of Miceal Murphy and Damien Kirk.

On the senior football front, Kieran Donaghy will be back on Kieran McGeeney’s ticket for a fourth year in succession.
