DONEGAL’S TWO-TIME ALL-STAR goalkeeper Paul Durcan was part of the Ballyboden St Enda’s side that won the Dublin SFC title this afternoon.
The Donegal town native, who won the 2003 RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta SFC with Four Masters, had a fine game as St Enda’s defeated St Vincent’s 2-8 to 1-10, making a crucial late save from Ruairi Trainor to preserve his side’s lead.

Andrew Kerins hit both goals for the southsiders, who were 1-7 to 0-3 in front at half-time.
Dublin midfielder Michael Darragh Macauley, whose late father Michael was from Lettermacaward, was also part of the St Enda’s team.
The Dublin champions will now face St Pat’s from Louth next weekend in Drogheda in the Leinster Club SFC.
Durcan was named as an All-Star in both 2012 and 2014.
