Watch: 55-Year-Old Down Legend Hits Monstrous Point In County Final

27-years to the day after helping Down to their fifth All-Ireland title in 1991, Mickey Linden is demonstrating why age is just number.

At 55, Linden came off the bench for Mayobridge in the Down Reserve final. In a 1-15 to 0-7 win over Burren, Linden wasn't merely satisfied with taking part, however.

Despite some pretty intense calls for the ball from a nearby teammate, Linden held onto the ball long enough to find himself in a shooting position.

From an incredible distance, Linden lofted a beautiful left-footed effort straight over the bar. A monstrous effort from the 55-year-old corner-forward, you can watch his outstanding point below.

Plenty of those present in Pairc Esler could scarcely believe what they had just seen.

Even the defeated finalists could but applaud Linden's moment of magic.
