Crossmaglen double All-Ireland winning managers Tony McEntee and Gareth O'Neill have stepped down from their posts after three years in charge.

The pair, along with coach Seamus McGeown, informed the club of their decision on Wednesday night.

McEntee and O'Neill won back-to-back All-Ireland club titles in 2011 and 2012, as well as three Ulster Championships and three Armagh crowns.

Cross lost to St Brigid's in this year's All-Ireland club semi-final.

The Roscommon side triumphed in last month's game at Mullingar, after which Oisin McConville announced his retirement.

The duo cited family commitments as their reason for stepping down from a role they took on in 2010.

Both will continue to assist the club with underage coaching.

It is unclear who will succeed the duo as Crossmaglen bid to win their 41st Armagh title this year.
