It's Only January And We've Already Seen The Cheekiest Finish Of The GAA Year

What a name and what a finish. Early January football may not be the most popular aspect of the GAA calendar but if it delivers more moments like this then we're all for it.

Antrim ran out 3-11 to 1-11 winners over Queens in the McKenna Cup on Wednesday with an undoubted highlight coming in the form of Brian 'Bam' Neeson's insurance score in injury time to put a bit of gloss on the scoreline.

Neeson changed the game in Antrim's favour after coming on with two expertly taken second half goals and when you see Joe Brolly this impressed with his second strike, you know it was a bit special.

Thankfully Jerome Quinn was on hand for the Irish News to film the action and we all (Neeson included) owe them quite a bit of thanks for the fact that this has been recorded for posterity.

(Skip to 0.52 for Neeson's second goal)

Well that's just glorious (even if the Queens defender won't be overly pleased with the part he played in it).

You can catch the entire reaction on the Irish News website and thanks to Dev Devlin for the heads up.
