    Going though Youtube the the other night I spotted this video. Also a hurling equivalent was released the same time.



    Surprising that there was never another one released and given the decline of the disc format never will be but I'd imagine there must have been some fair scores in the last decade for a modern equivalent.

    Thinking of a few examples over the years.
    Colm Coopers goals v Mayo and Dublin 2011
    Michael Murphy v Galway 2015
    Cillian O Connor v Dublin in the 2015 Semi final Replay
    Conor Mcmanus v Tyrone in 2018

    What other ones could be up there?

    Maurice Fitzgerald's sideline in the 1997 All Ireland final,similar to bring the quarter final v Dublin to a replay in Thurles.

    Ciaran Mc's winner against Dublin in 2006.

    Any number of Micheal Donnellan's points on the run.If I'm correct one in particular v Kildare in the 1998 final.

    Countless Conor McManus scores.

    Diarmuid O Connor had a couple of corkers v Dublin in first half of the 2015 semi final replay v Dublin.

    Kevin Cassidy v Kildare 2011 All Ireland Quarter Final.

    My favourite score of all time. I'm biased being from Mayo. But it was so good. Last few minutes, and he picked the ball up back around his own 21 yard line. Laid it of, and sprinted up near the Dublin 21. To be able to take the ball then, and have the confidence, energy and accuracy to bang it over from that angle is exceptional.
    Love watchin David Cliffords effort from close to the sideline – I think it was last year. The camera got an excellent angle of it, from behind him.
    Conor McManus got a score from close to the sideline last year too I think. I don’t know how he did it. From the angle and his body shape, it looked like there was no way he could get enough power into it to to get over the bar, but he did.

    I'd consider Brian Doohers point from the sideline against Kerry in the 2008 final as good a score as any.

    Always thought McHugh's goal in that same Galway game was the best scored that year.

    Ciaran Careys point for Limerick V clare in 1996 in Limerick
    Jimmy Barry Murphys overhead pull goal for Cork V Galway early 80s
    John Fentons goal for Cork v Limerick in 1987 from 60 yards out

    Seamus Darbys goal in 82 for Offaly v kerry has to be the most iconic GAA score of all time

    Agreed in Maurice. Had about 3 or 4 great scores in the 97 final. Dublin point spectacular too.

    McDonald of course.great score of any era.

    Donnellans long run before a point agqinst Kildare.Class

    McManus would have about 7 to 8 iconic scores at least I'd imagine.

    O connor kicked a few beauty's that day.also kicked 1 great point in the 2019 league final in the second half.even his workfor the second goal was good.

    A great score but also a brilliant team move. Was unreal how they manage to hold onto the ball and keep.it in play.

    Peter Duggan's point v Galway [drawn game] 2018

    surely one of the greatest individuals efforts seen in Croke Park


  • Registered Users Posts: 793 ✭✭✭ largepants


    John Doyle's point v Limerick in Gaelic Grounds in qualifier in 2008. As good as Maurice Fitzgeralds.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,248 ✭✭✭ shockframe


    Some of the best scores so far in the league

    David Clifford v Dublin
    Conor Mcmanus v Dublin
    Conor Mccarthy v Dublin
    Shane Walsh v Kerry
    Darren McCurry v Kerry
    Evan O'Carolll v Roscommon

    Not sure if on the video but Joe Kavanagh goal v Meath in 99 was a beauty

    I've seen Fenton's lots of times on tg4. Completely unintentional goal. He just swiped as hard as he could at a ball that bobbled up nicely for him. Wouldn't rate it as a great score

    I was there that day and that was a stupendous score.

    Tyrone hat on....

    Peter Canavan's goal against Kerry in the 2005 final. You couldn't have placed it better if you tried 100 times.

    Mulligan's goal against Dublin. More dummys than you'd see in the window of a clothes shop.

    Peadar Carton's goal to win Leinster under 21 in 2006.
