The look on Dean Rock's face says it all as the Dubs made it four-in-a-row in Croke Park on Sunday setting off wild celebrations all over the county.

The Garristown man played his part kicking points from play and from frees as Dublin dispensed with Tyrone and marched to their sixth All-Ireland victory in just eight years.

Rolestown's and Fingal Ravens Darren Daly made it on to the pitch to play his part in the 58th minute and according to his Fingal Ravens Senior Team selector, Alan Manning: 'He seemed to command the defence when he came on.'

It was Darren's sixth All-Ireland medal, a number matched by Fingallians man, Paul Flynn. Paul had played in every match in the Championship until the final when he missed out but there could be little disappointment on a day when he and his team made history.
