The Kilcar man landed the buzzer-beater from downtown!

Paddy McBrearty loves a late winner! Donegal have made a bright start to life under new manager Paddy Carr, with a narrow victory over All-Ireland champions Kerry in Ballybofey.

In a cagey affair in tricky conditions, the sides were neck-and-neck heading down the home straight.

The game needed a moment of magic, and Paddy McBrearty duly provided it.

With Donegal now in the post-Michael Murphy era, 2012 All-Ireland winner McBrearty stepped up in the moment of need to supply the stunning winner.

Collecting the ball wide on the right, he cut inside before playing a neat one-two with Daire Ó Baoill. He then unleashed his canon of a left boot to set the ball over the bar from just inside the 45 in the fourth minute of added time.

Now with the added responsibility of the Donegal captaincy, McBrearty appears to be thriving.

It gave the Ulster side a 0-13 to 1-9 victory, as they sealed a winning start to the National League.

Elsewhere in Division 1, Roscommon marked their return to the top tier in style by defeating Tyrone, 3-11 to 1-12.

In the second tier, Meath delivered an away victoruy over Cork, 3-14 to 0-19, while Clare edged Louth, 0-13 to 1-9.

Meanwhile, Offaly and Cavan claimed wins on the road over Antrim and Westmeath respectively in Division 3, while Leitrim and Laois won in Division 4.
