Armagh football fans have been left reeling today with news that Down legends Benny Coulter & James McCartan have taken the reigns as the new management team of the Orchard County.
The news was broke in an unusual fashion with the Armagh County Board opting to showcase the duo wearing the new 2019 county jersey.
We spoke to Armagh fan Paul Lynch who told us:
“I’m not usually a God fearing man but since seeing this news I’ve said 4 novenas and went to speak to the Parish Priest for a few prayers.
I’ve spent most of my adult life calling them two men all the names under the sun, how they can come in and take over my county is beyond me. I’m devastated.”
It is thought a delegation of Camlough & Bessbrook Armagh fans led by Niall Cowan & Alan McArdle are to seek a legal injunction to stop what they call ‘ethnic cleansing’ of Armagh football.
