Harry Kenny has resigned as manager of St Patrick's Athletic.

The former Bray Wanderers boss took the reins from Liam Buckley last October but has endured a frustrating campaign in Inchicore. 

The Saints are fifth in the Premier Division table, six points off third-placed Bohs, but they've failed to really catch fire in what's been an inconsistent campaign.

Kenny's men crashed of the Europa League in the first round of qualifying at the hands of Swedish outfit Norrkoping, and slumped to a 3-1 loss at UCD in the second round of the FAI Cup last night.

That proved to be the final straw for Kenny, who has come in for heavy criticism from some Saints supporters. 

"St Patrick's Athletic hereby announce that Harry Kenny has resigned from his position as first team manager by mutual consent," a club statement read.

"Club chairman Garrett Kelleher would like to thank Harry for his professionalism over the last year and in his earlier role as assistant manager. 

"Harry would like to thank all involved with St Pats for the support given to him and wishes the club the best of luck in the future."
