Watch: Sligo Rovers Crash The Party At Finn Harps Fundraising Draw

Small world. Especially, it seems, when it comes to the self-styled Greatest League in the World.

Finn Harps have made a stunning start to the new League of Ireland season, racing to the top of the division after impressive wins over Dundalk and Bohemians. They've also just secured government funding for a long-awaited new stadium in Stranorlar. They dropped the ball yesterday –  albeit, off the pitch, rather than on it.

Broadcasting the winners of a fundraising raffle run by the club, a familiar foe was named as the lucky recipient of one of the top prize, a brand new Dacia car. It took a moment for those in the room to realise who Colin Feehily, CEO at Sligo Rovers, was.

The north-west rivals haven't met on the pitch yet this season, but it's first blood to the Connacht club. The response from the Harps MC spoke volumes.
