Kieran McGeeney has been ratified to stay on as Armagh manager for a further two years, it has been confirmed.

The 2002 All-Ireland winning captain has been in charge of his native county for the past five seasons after first taking over in 2014.

McGeeney oversaw their first Ulster SFC win in five years in 2019, after defeating Down in an extra-time thriller. They subsequently bowed out to Cavan at the semi-final stage following a replay.

Armagh bounced back by overcoming Monaghan in the qualifiers before exiting the championship on the back of a one-point loss to Mayo in Castlebar at the end of June.

"Armagh County Committee has unanimously ratified Kieran McGeeney as County Senior Football Manager for a further two years," a statement from Armagh GAA confirmed.

Armagh's hurling boss Padraig O'Connor has also been re-appointed by the Armagh County Committee.
