Carr quits Kilmacud

Paddy Carr has stepped down as Kilmacud Crokes manager after four years in charge, writes Colm Keys.

Carr made his decision in the wake of their recent Dublin SFC defeat to St Brigid's.

During his time there, Kilmacud were crowned All-Ireland champions once, in 2009, and Dublin and Leinster champions twice.

"It was an emotional decision. Kilmacud is the club I played my football with growing up and they have been a great bunch to work with. But we felt it was the right time to step aside," said Carr, who worked as Louth manager in 2002 and 2003.

Meanwhile, former Kildare player Anthony Rainbow will link up with Luke Dempsey in Carlow.

Rainbow retired from inter-county football 12 months ago and was a Kildare U-21 selector earlier this year.
