Four-in-a-row All-Ireland winner Brian Fenton admits that his record of never having lost a Championship game is "fairytale stuff" but insists the team is hungry for even more success.

The 25-year-old Raheny midfielder made his debut against Longford in the 2015 Leinster Championship. He was named man of the match in that year's All-Ireland final victory over Kerry and earned a first All-Star.

He was an All-Star again in 2016 as Mayo were beaten and claimed a third Celtic cross against the westerners last year.

Yesterday's final triumph against Tyrone means he has played 27 times in the Championship and never lost.

"It's fairytale stuff to be honest. You really do have to pinch yourself," he told RTÉ Sport.

"It's unique and I'm actutely aware of it but it's not something I dwell on.

"I'm one of 15 players that take to the pitch, one of 26 that travel to Croke Park on match-day. I'm so lucky to be a part of it all.

"I haven't lost but the lads haven't lost either. I'm not a magical cog. Hopefully there will be more success next year."

Fenton has been present for an evolution in the Dubs' style since they were smothered by the Donegal blanket defence in the 2014 semi-final.

"After 2014 that sort of all-out attack that Dublin used to play... we've evolved every year," he said.

"Mayo took us to the pin of our collars last year and the year before, Kerry previous to that.

"You look at how teams are setting up against you and try to break them down and find their weaknesses. Every team does that to us as well.

"Year on year, we've found incredible talent like Con [O'Callaghan] last year and Brian [Howard, his clubmate] and Eoin Murchan this year."

Despite being part of only the third team ever to win four All-Ireland SFC titles in a row, Fenton insists the thrill of victory remains just as sweet as it was in his first season.

If Dublin's appetite for success remains as strong as he suggests, the odds on a first senior five-in-a-row will not be long.

"It's certainly not different," he said. "After the game, the emotions are sky-high. Seeing your family, sharing those moments with the lads on the pitch, seeing your friends, girlfriends, wives... those seconds into minutes are just so special.

"I'm so blessed that I've been able to do it four times in a row. They are incredible days. I'm privileged to be a part of it.

"We don't get sick of it. We're always hungry to improve and achieve what we can."
