Watch: We Already Have Another Contender For GAA Score Of The Year

Watch: We Already Have Another Contender For GAA Score Of The Year

You'd almost have to say it's trick photography but when you consider that the cameraman in question didn't even manage to catch it, that seems rather unlikely.

Mayo's Darren Coen, playing for Hollymount-Carramore in the AIB All-Ireland intermediate semi-final against Loughinisland on Sunday, managed to squeeze over the kind of point that can only be talked about in hyperbole.

Luckily it was captured by Local Streaming for everyone to see, which means we can add to the hyperbole by stating that Coen actually scored a point from behind the stand, while sitting in his car and browsing twitter. The fact that the angle of the score was so tight that the camera lens didn't even reach that far means that such hyperbole is entirely within the realms of possibility. (Continued below)

It was one of eight points that Coen scored at Kingspan Breffni Park as Hollymount-Carramore edged past their County Down opponents to set up a Croke Park date with Maurice Fitzgerald's St. Mary's side on February 6th.

If Coen does want to be in the running for ludicrously early GAA score of the year, he may have to lobby quite heavily to get past Bam Neeson and his audacious goal for Antrim a couple of weeks ago.
