The Crossmaglen Rangers forward has announced that the defeat against St Brigid's of Roscommon on 16 February was his last for the Armagh side.

McConville enjoyed a glittering career winning six All-Ireland titles with Cross and lifted the Sam Maguire with Armagh in 2002.

He told UTV: "I had been thinking about it for a couple of years and felt that now the time was right."
