Roscommon's 22-point defeat to Mayo in the All-Ireland quarter-final was hard to watch given the overwhelming one-sidedness of the game, but it was harder for the players to stomach after the final whistle.

The Rossies entered the replay as Connacht champions and got off to a great start in the first game with two early goals through Ciaran Murtagh and Fintan Cregg.

In the replay they were blown away by a Mayo team that offered their first convincing performance of the championship ending a dream campaign for Kevin McStay's side in the process.

AIB captured the moment in episode four of their Behind The Gates series.
