SIX Mayo Gaelic footballers have enjoyed club championship success in Dublin.
They were members of the Ranelagh Gaels team who were crowned Dublin Junior 2 Football Championship winners on bank holiday Monday.
Ranelagh came up against Ballyfermot DLS in the final played in Parnell Park and emerged two-point victors - 1-13 to 2-8 – after extra time, in a tough battle.
Ranelagh Gaels is a relatively new club, established in 2003, and this was their first championship title win.
On a team that remarkably featured no Dublin players on the day, Enda Marren, Swinford, started at wing-forward and put in a great performance.
Brian Waldron, Eastern Gaels, at corner-back, had a storming second half.
Kevin Gallagher from Bohola Moy Davitts was a sub but played his part all year in the club's journey to glory. Martin Larkin, Balla, came on as a sub.
Graham O’Toole from Louisburgh, wing-forward, put in a man of the match display.
And another west Mayo man, Liam Fallon from Achill, started at corner-forward.
This was a new competition this year for clubs with just one adult men’s team, which is unusual in Dublin.
At the helm for the history-making Gaels was manager Liam O’Hagan, an 80-year-old Dublin GAA legend.
