As a spectator of Gaelic football, there’s nothing much sweeter than a point off the outside of the boot.
Maurice Fitzgerald’s wonder-strike from the sideline against Dublin in 2001, to Ciaran McDonald’s countless left-footers in MacHale Park, it’s fair to say it’s a thing of beauty once implemented correctly.
On Saturday, in the Division 1 National Football League game between Tyrone and Donegal, spectators were subject to yet another piece of pure magic.
This time around, it was from Donegal’s Odhrán Mac Niallais. Just about.
Unfortunately for Mac Niallais and his Donegal counterparts, Tyrone ran out eventual winners of the game on a scoreline of 2-13 to 1-10.
