Watch: Smashing Goal Of The Year Contender In Donegal Club Championship

Naomh Conaill are taking on Gaoth Dobhair in the Donegal Senior Football Championship this evening, live on eir Sport. 

So far this weekend we have been treated to action from the Dublin Senior Football Championship and Kilkenny Senior Hurling Championship. Now is the turn of the club players of Donegal to show us what they are capable of.

With current county star and legend Michael Murphy on hand in the commentary box to offer his analysis, and likewise other native county players commentating on the club game’s within their own club championships over the weekend, the eir Sport coverage has a real genuine feel to it.

One moment of pure brilliance in this evening’s encounter was the first goal of the night, scored by Michael Carroll of Gaoth Dobhair.

As the ball is kicked out long and a fight for possession ensues, it is the lightning quick wing-forward who pounces first and bursts away from the crowd. He keeps going and keeps going, cutting through the Naomh Conaill defence like a knife through butter before unleashing a worldie of a finish.

See for yourself:

Quite rightly that will be talked about as a goal of the year contender for 2017 across all grades of Gaelic football.
