At the end of the 2010-11 Premier League season, Barry Glendenning was asked to name his favourite match of the season on the Guardian football podcast.
He plumped for the 4-4 draw between Newcastle and Arsenal on the grounds that "there are few things in this world that are funnier than seeing Newcastle go 4-0 down at home... but one thing that is funnier is seeing Arsenal lose a four goal lead.
Tonight in Ferrycarrig Park, Wexford Youths almost took Arsenal's achievement a step further. They led Galway United 5-0 after 53 minutes.
When Danny Furlong slotted home to make it five with 37 minutes left to play, it seemed that Galway United were in for a historic hammering.
21 minutes later, there was one goal in it.
The away side scored four goals inside a bizarre fourteen minute spell. Kevin Devanney, an own goal from Aidan Friel, and strikes from Vinny Faherty and Conor Melody made it 5-4.
The still had over a quarter of an hour to get an equaliser but Youths managed to staunch the flow of goals when a humiliating reversal looked on the cards.
Elsewhere, the entire football family was crestfallen to learn that Longford Town took a step closer to relegation tonight.
They lost 1-0 in the Showgrounds and have now fallen nine points behind the aforementioned Wexford Youths with four games remaining.
Whatever happens from now on, and whatever happens with Dundalk, this has been a terrible year for Irish football.
