Derry minors may have wanted to forget their Croke Park experience as quickly as possible on Sunday but there was one fan of the Oak Leaf County who has a memory to cherish.
A video has emerged of the victorious Dublin seniors with the Sam Maguire cup in the warm-up area beside the dressing rooms at HQ.
The panel are sitting down while Jim Gavin helps 12-year-old Anton Campbell from Magherafelt to lift the famous prize aloft.
Anton, who has Down syndrome, is a member of the O'Donovan Rossa club.
Some consolation for one dedicated fan after a heavy defeat to Kerry.
He was the first Derry man since Henry Downey in 1993 to lift the trophy.
Joe Brolly, what do you think of that?
