MALACHY O’ROURKE HAS stepped down as Monaghan boss after seven years in charge of the county. 

O’Rourke announced his decision shortly after their All-Ireland SFC qualifier round 2 exit to Armagh this evening. He led the county to famous Ulster title wins in 2013 and 2015.

The Farney reached the last four of the All-Ireland series in 2018 but failed to reach those heights this season. 

Monaghan exited Ulster at the quarter-final stage after a defeat to Cavan.

They recovered in the backdoor system to defeat Fermanagh, but fell to Armagh by eight points in Clones this evening.
