Watch: Con O’Callaghan Is Back Hurling And Scored A Beauty Of A Goal

Con O'Callaghan

All-Ireland champions Cuala faced into a crucial clash at the weekend, as they knew they had to win to keep their hopes of a third county championship alive.

They came up against Crumlin, who had won their first two games against Faughs and Ballyboden.

However, the Dalkey outfit ran riot, going straight into a nine-point lead.

Cuala were bolstered by county footballers Con O’Callaghan and Mark Schutte, to add to their host of intercounty hurlers, including Cian O’Callaghan, Oisín Gough and David Treacy.

Fresh from helping Dublin to a third consecutive Sam Maguire triumph, the younger O’Callaghan brother returned to the small ball this weekend to aid his club into the county quarter-final.

He was sprung from the bench for the rampant Cuala side, and scored 1-01, including this remarkable goal.

Cuala now march onto the quarter-finals, where they take on St Brigid’s.

Meanwhile, Crumlin were pipped to second place in the group by Ballyboden St Enda’s on points difference, despite beating them earlier in the year.

With O’Callaghan on board, Cuala will now march on as they aim to emulate the remarkable success of last year.
