Listen: Hilarious Local Radio Commentators Heralds Mayo Victory

Christ Almighty, it seems Sunday's National Football League Final success has had a profound effect on Mayo's very own voice of GAA, Martin Carney.

James Horan's side collected their first Division One title in 18 years after a barnstorming second-half come back over Kerry at Croke Park, a big stage victory that many feared would be beyond the infamous oh-so-nears of recent footballing history.

Goals from Matthew Ruane, Diarmuid O'Connor and Ciarán Treacy saw the westerners over-turn a four-point half-time deficit to eventually have four points of their own to spare to their Munster rivals at the full-time whistle.

Carney was accompanying Mid West Radio commentary legend Michael D. McAndrew on the Croke Park gantry for the game and it's fair to say the two lads let loose as the Yew County fired themselves to victory.

Prick your ears ladies and gents, we'll be asking for your top three one-liners from this two-minute attack on the senses.

"Where in the name of Jaysis are they going, I was saying to myself".

"DIARRRRMUID O'CONNOR!"

"And now, we can just measure ourselves".

But nothing comes close to Carney's line for the ages when Treacy wrapped up the game.

There's two men on the pitch making love....wooooo!

We have to say, we're loving this new 'by the seat of your pants' side Martin has adopted and we can only fathom the sort of great spakes he'll be firing our way should Mayo be back on the Hogan Stand steps come September.

And it seems we weren't the only ones to appreciate the new comic stylings.

If anything, it has absolutely guaranteed that my Connacht Championship viewing will be accompanied by audio from Michael D.

A testament to the notion that local radio GAA commentary is the watermark we should all aspire to.
