Aidan O'Brien has left his post as Wexford football manager after two seasons in charge.

The Adamstown man took over from Jason Ryan in October 2012 and reached the Leinster semi-final in both his seasons in charge.

Wexford beat Longford in the provincial quarter-final this year before losing to eventual winners Dublin.

They were eliminated by Laois in round 2 of the qualifiers for the second year in a row.

The Model County were relegated from Division 2 in O'Brien's first National League campaign and finished fifth in Division 3 this term.

A Wexford County Board statement said: "Aidan O Brien has confirmed to the County Chairman that for personal reasons he will not be continuing as Senior Football Team Manger.

"He did tremendous work during his two years at the helm and on behalf of Coiste Chondae.

"We would like to thank him most sincerely for all his efforts.

"The football monitoring committee will now start the process of finding a successor."
