Is This The Mark Of The Year Already?

Is This The Mark Of The Year Already?
By Arthur James O'Dea Updated

Depending on which side of the border you ask, Sunday's National League clash between Cavan and Meath was the clash of two huge rivals.

Both plying their trade in Division 2 of the football league, it was Cavan who came ran out 2-14 to 1-12 winners.

Sitting atop the second tier now, Cavan were largely dominant throughout; their spread of scorers ranging right across the team.

One of those scores is already being talked about (by a certain Cavan man, admittedly) as one of the goals of the year.

In fairly torrid conditions, Gearoid McKiernan came roaring out of the sky to make an incredible mark.

Having caught the ball, he quickly turned and fed it out wide to Cian Mackey. Standing between the midfield and the Meath 45, Mackey sought out Ciaran 'The Holla' Brady to his right.

With great fluidity and pace, Mackey, almost Jari Litmanen-esque, lofted it into Brady's path and he was away.


Without breaking stride, Brady proceeded to nutmeg the Meath 'keeper and wheel away celebrating what was an insurmountable 10 point lead now working in Cavan's favour.

You can watch the highlights of the match tonight on TG4, but for now, you can content yourself with McKiernan's incredible mark that set the whole thing in motion.
