Watch: Phenomenal Michael Murphy Back To His Best For Donegal

Donegal's hopes of an All-Ireland semi-final took a hit with the loss of Patrick McBrearty and Eoghan Ban Gallagher, but one man's outstanding form could be enough to see them through. The outstanding Michael Murphy is back to his best.

Murphy endured a frustrating 2017 with problematic knee and groin injuries. He returned five months ago against Dublin in their Croke Park National League encounter but was out-of-form and sluggish. After that game, he stayed behind for extra conditioning work.

Roscommon and Donegal met today in the second round of the All-Ireland quarter-final series. The reward of that work was evident today as the Glenswilly clubman looked in peak condition. Playing as an inside forward at the edge of the square, Murphy finished with nine points in a spectacular performance.
