Deegan, who won All-Ireland titles with the Mourne men in 1991 and 1994, takes over from Hugh Kenny who left the post after this year's Dublin championship.

Deegan played senior football for many years with Crokes before cutting his teeth as a manger with Nh Mearnóg, Skerries Harps and Ballyboden St Enda’s.

“We are delighted to welcome Conor back to Kilmacud where he will lead a management team made up of former Kilmacud Crokes senior footballers and we wish Conor and all his team every success over the coming years,” Kilmacud Crokes football chairman Seán Fox told Hill16.ie.

John Costello, Mick Jones, Michael Leahy and Declan Clancy will act as selectors with Deegan as manager.
