What were you doing at the age of 14? As you struggle to recall the banality of these early teenage years, behold with inadequacy the stunning achievement of 14 year old Sarah Dillon of Milltown, County Westmeath. With just eight minutes remaining of the All Ireland Ladies Intermediate Club Final, Dillon came off the bench to rifle home this stunning strike:
Most remarkably, Dillon started the sweeping move, seizing on a loose ball on her own half-back line. It was a critical score as Milltown had been crusing and led by ten points with ten minutes to go, but oppenents Cahir rallied to trail by just two points before being beaten by the clock. It was a fantastic achievement for Milltown and like many GAA club achievements, it was an intensely family affair. Sarah's father Tom is the manager, while her sister Tracey played in midfield. The glory belonged to Sarah, however. Sunday's was the biggest Dillon - related drama since this.
