Dublin's Ballyboden-St. Enda's are All-Ireland Club Football Champions after a 2-14 to 0-07 win over Mayo's Castlebar Mitchels in Croke Park.
It is the first time, Ballyboden-St. Enda's have won the Andy Merrigan Cup. The Dublin team took the lead after 90 seconds and never looked back after Colm Basquel found the back of the net.
The result looked a formality at half-time as the Dublin champions led by 2-05 to 0-03. Andrew Kerin scored the game's second goal after Aran Waters was fouled by Mayo defender Tom Cunniffe.
Mitchels' shooting accuracy was amongst the game's talking points as they could not convert chances from free kicks or open play. It is the second All-Ireland Final the Mayo club has lost in three years after losing to St. Vincent's in 2014.
