Varley is switching from his native Garrymore to 2014 All-Ireland club champions St Vincent’s. The attacker is not currently involved with the Mayo senior side but has been in recent seasons and came on as a substitute in the 2013 All-Ireland final loss to Dublin.

Clancy lined out for Leitrim in last year’s championship and is joining Ballyboden St-Enda’s, who take on Castlebar Mitchels in the All-Ireland club football decider next week.

The GAA website’s transfer database confirms that both moves were rubberstamped on Sunday 6 March.

Other well-known inter-county footballers who have recently switched include Fermanagh’s Tomas Corrigan to St Oliver Plunkett’s-Eoghan Ruadh, Armagh’s Kevin Dyas to Kilmacud Crokes and Roscommon’s Neil Collins to St Brigid’s.
