While Errigal Ciarán would come up short in their Ulster championship game against over the weekend, it was one of their players that provided the most memorable moment of the game.

In the opening half, Ruairí Canavan's dummy solo sent an Glen Ryan Dougan to the shops, with the young forward then going on to kick a beautiful score.

At least the Glen player took the whole thing in good spirits.

Plenty of people stood up and took notice of the piece of skill, especially as it came from the son of Tyrone legend Peter Canavan.


Even those beyond these borders were impressed with what they saw.

Of course, Gaelic football may look a bit strange to those who are no familiar with the sport as it is unlike most other field games out there.


However, that didn't stop those who saw this passage of play from being impressed regardless of their knowledge of the game.


CBS Sports, the American broadcaster, shared the clip to their 3.1m followers on Tik Tok. It has since racked up over 570,000 views.

It also caught the eye on Twitter. The clip shared by the Smaller Fish GAA page has been viewed over 2.6m times.


Some of the responses featured those who were being introduced to GAA for the first time.

Errigal Ciaran won their first county title in a decade earlier this year, although they would come up short on this occasion in Ulster.

Glen will now take on Antrim champions Clann na hÉireann Carraigin in the semi-final of the competition next week on November 27th.
