Mayo's Chris Barrett has been voted Footballer of the Week.

The tigerish defender earned the top spot with Dublin duo James McCarthy and Dean Rock in second and third place respectively.

The Mayo defence was superb on Sunday and no-one played with more defiance than Belmullet man Chris Barrett.

He made a series of brilliant tackles, more than once cleanly stripping a Dublin ball-carrier of possession, as well as number of key interceptions.

He was more than just a stopper too, with his willingness to get on the front foot consistently giving Mayo ball carriers an option off the shoulder.
