The Dublin minors lost out to Wexford in the Leinster Hurling Championship on Saturday afternoon, after extra time. However, they did leave the south east with something to treasure, as substitute Ronan Hayes scored the most wonderful of goals.
Having fielded a high ball at the edge of the square, he was swarmed by a host of backs who bottled him up, and it looked like he had nowhere to go. However, he wiggled his way free, before throwing up the ball and jumping to kick it into the back of the net.
This is simply amazing.
This has to be one of the most remarkable goals witnessed in Innovate Wexford Park! Dublin goal from today’s MHC pic.twitter.com/W72O6cIUKm

Hayes hails from Kilmacud Crokes, and judging by this innovation and athleticism, he has a bright future ahead.
It was somewhat reminiscent of another goal by the Boys in Blue in recent years.
However, for us, Hayes’ effort is miles better than that of David Treacy in the All-Ireland semi-final.
What an amazing hurling goal!
The Dubs now must go through the back door, where they will face Laois or Westmeath next Saturday.
