Over the past decade, the rivalry between Dublin and Mayo has bordered on nuclear at times… so you might surmise that Chris Barrett can expect a hot reception on the club fields of the capital now that he has enlisted with Clontarf.

However, Enda Varley doesn't think so. "Probably one remark" is all the former Mayo forward has received since joining St Vincent's in 2016. "I was actually quite surprised - there wasn't that much sledging in terms of verbals. To be brutally honest with you, I got more back in my own county."
