Tonight's meeting was to rubber stamp the appointment following Grimley's departure after the recent All-Ireland quarter-final defeat to Donegal over two weeks ago.

McGeeney worked in a coaching capacity with Grimley for the last year after his six years stint in charge of Kildare was brought to an end by their county board last year.

His appointment was unanimously ratified tonight and the County Board have expressed their hope of further progress with their senior footballers.

"The County Board hope that under Kieran McGeeney’s leadership this promising team can achieve the success yearned for by the county and its loyal supporters," the official statement read tonight.

McGeeney captained the Armagh team when they won the All Ireland Senior Football inter-county championship in 2002 and won six Ulster titles during his 15-year playing career and also represented and captained Ireland in the International Rules side.
