In this week's edition of the Hard Shoulder, the lads recall the extraordinary tale of Graham Geraghty and the helicopter. It is a story which could only have a man like Geraghty at it's heart. Listen below.

The lads also pick a few of their favourite goals ever scored. Moyles pitched in with three, while Niall Kelly instanced one very modern one.

Eoin Mulligan

This stunner from 2005 turned the quarter-final in Tyrone's direction. An unforgettable pair of shimmies before he lashed the ball to the roof of the net.


Darran O'Sullivan

A goal made for the phrase 'soccer style'. Scored in the quarter-final of Kerry's relatively low-key run to the 2011 All-Ireland football final.



Jack O'Shea

Gaelic football's equivalent of the Carlos Alberto goal from the 1970 World Cup Final. The best team of all time building a goal from the other end of the field, involving numerous great players in the process.


The primary difference is that the Alberto goal was scored near the end of the 1970 showpiece while the O'Shea strike was the first score of the game.


James O'Donoghue

The goal which set the ball rolling on the most exhilarating games ever played in Croke Park, Colm Cooper threaded a wonderful pass through the heart of numerically packed Dublin defence, quick as a flash Donncha Walsh swung a fist pass to James O'Donoghue who arrowed a shot into the corner without delay. Magnificent.
