HARRY KENNY’S TIME in charge of St Patrick’s Athletic has come to an end, with the 57-year-old resigning his post after falling to a disappointing FAI Cup exit to UCD on Friday night.

The Dubliner was appointed to succeed Liam Buckley late last year, but has lasted just 10 months in charge after a poor debut season at Richmond Park.

The Saints recruited a number of top signings in anticipation of a big campaign in Inchicore for the 2013 Premier Division champions, as the club targeted a return to the European places in 2019.

However the club currently sit in fifth spot, three points off Derry City, and will go without silverware after exiting both the EA Sports Cup and FAI Cup.

“Chairman Garrett Kelleher would like to thank Harry for his professionalism over the last year and in his earlier role as assistant manager,” a club statement confirming Kenny’s departure said on Saturday.

“Harry would like to thank all involved with St Pat’s for the support given to him and wishes the club the best of luck in the future.”
