Murtagh back at the helm in bid to rekindle glory days

Donal Murtagh is hoping to help rekindle Crossmaglen Rangers' glory days now that he has returned to the managerial role within the club.

As a commanding full-back with the side, Murtagh won 10 Armagh senior championship medals, four Ulster honours and three All-Ireland gongs, while in his previous term as manager he took the club to three Ulster and three Armagh triumphs as well as the All-Ireland title in 2007.

His return to his sideline role is already being hailed and he will be joined by Kieran Donnelly, Francis Fitzpatrick and Michael Moley.

The Rangers have given way to Maghery and Armagh Harps, who have won the county title over the past two years, but under Murtagh's leadership there is considerable optimism that the glory days can return to the south Armagh club.
