Watch: Padraig Harrington Collapses Croke Park Crossbar With Free-Kick

How has this taken so long to emerge?

Padraig Harrington, three-times a Major winner, taking a free-kick in Croke Park that manages to bring down a crossbar.

Posted by Na Fianna GAA Club, Harrington, playing in a Dublin colleges' final for Colaiste Eanna, was joined in Croke Park by Dessie Farrell of St. Vincent's.

Although Harrington's effort didn't look particularly powerful, it was enough to rattle the crossbar sufficiently so that it fell; whether the 'keeper in question was unfortunate enough to get caught remains unclear.

What you can be certain of though is that the umpire in charge of the white flag was putting his official duties first and foremost - irrespective of where the cross-bar ended up.

Harrington has even weighed in on this rare moment being relocated after so many years.
