Crossmaglen joint-manager Oisin McConville says the Armagh side were "masters of their own downfall" as they went down to Castlebar by a single point in the All-Ireland Club Football semi-final at Breffni Park.
"This defeat really, really hurts. We didn't get the scores on the board and didn't take our chances. When you don't do that you get punished," said McConville.
"The boys gave us everything on the day but we will come out fighting again next year. The club has a big future to look forward to."
