Watch: Paul Mannion Turns On The Wheels To Burn Castleknock Defence And Raise Green Flag

What a goal from Paul Mannion!

The Dublin Senior Football Championship quarter-finals are taking place this weekend. St Vincent’s are already through to the final four, after overcoming St Sylvester’s earlier today.

St Jude’s take on Cuala and Ballymun face St Brigid’s tomorrow, but the big one tonight is between Castleknock and Kilmacud Crokes.

The clash between last year’s beaten finalists and the Stillorgan giants is being broadcast live on eir Sport, and there is some ridiculous skill on display.

We’ve already been treated to an outrageous pass from Diarmuid Connolly this evening, but Paul Mannion may well have outdone his Dublin teammate.

The Crokes forward picked up possession out by the sideline on the 45, before turning on the gas to burn the opposition defence before placing a delightful lob into the net and raising a green flag.

This is something else…

The raw depth of talent on display in Parnell Park this evening leaves no wonder as to how dominant Dublin have been on the intercounty scene this decade.
