Kieran McGeeney joy as Armagh get 'monkey off their back'

Armagh manager Kieran McGeeney was delighted to see his side get a "monkey off their back" with an All-Ireland quarter-final win, even if he admitted that they have plenty of room to improve.

McGeeney’s side ran out 2-12 to 0-12 winners over Roscommon and secured their first semi-final appearance since 2005 as a result.

Ruaidhri Fallon's dismissal shortly before half-time helped to swing a game that was already turning in Armagh’s favour even further in that direction, but the Rossies hung in through the second half and it wasn’t until Conor Turbitt’s 52nd minute goal that the gap really opened up.

Speaking to RTÉ Sport afterwards, McGeeney admitted that he was delighted to see his side secure their place in the final four, even if he found fault with their display at times.

"It wasn't one of our best performances, we’ve played better here and lost," he said. "So maybe it's a good sign for the boys, they've been having a tremendous year so far.

"Today just wasn't maybe as slick as we would normally like. It was just poor skills at times, missing easy scores, that sort of stuff. But putting up 18 scores is still good on a bad day.

"We’re over the moon to get across the line. It's been a sort of monkey off her back and hopefully the fellas can go out now and express themselves the next day.

"Rian [O’Neill’s] frees were off and so were Rory [Grugan’s]. It’s been a long week with Rory's brother getting married and all those sorts of things. They take more out of you than people would think."

McGeeney claimed that no matter who his side face in the semi-finals they will go into the game as underdogs but he’s happy to sit back and watch how the other games play out now.

"It's massive, no matter who we play, we'll go in as underdogs,"
