History

The first official football champions of Armagh, following the creation in 1889 of the County Board, were Armagh Harps, in the 1889 final which saw the defeat of Blackwatertown in Armagh by a scoreline of 4-14 to 0-03. Crossmaglen Rangers have won the Armagh senior football championship on most occasions, with 40 victories since 1906, including a run of 13 wins from 1996 to 2008. During the 1997-2000 victorious seasons, Crossmaglen went on to claim three All-Ireland Club Championships in four years. They have since added All-Ireland titles in 2007, 2011 and 2012.
