EIRE Og Seville claimed the 2016 Andalucian Gaelic football championship in dramatic fashion.

Beating both the Gibraltar Gaels and the Costa Gaels on home turf, the Sevilla outfit were tied on 14 points with Gibraltar at the end of play.

A shortened playoff then saw the home side beat Gibraltar for the second time that day to claim the trophy.

A questionable disallowed goal in the first fixture ultimately cost Gibraltar Gaels the championship.

At the start of play all three teams were in with a chance of winning the trophy. However, the Costa Gaels faint hope of glory was extinguished after losing the opener to Sevilla.

A victory for Gibraltar Gaels over their Marbella counterparts set up a nervy playoff in which the home side’s strength in depth proved decisive.
