VIDEO: Gaelic footballer scores brilliant fisted point

St Mary’s Magherafelt footballer Thomas O’Kane showed incredible dexterity to score this point in a recent match against Ballymena.

When a 45 was dropped in front of goal by a team-mate O’Kane was running backwards and off-balance, but still got a fist to the ball and punched it over the bar.

There were a suggestion online that it might have been a training ground move, but it looks more like an impromptu piece of skill to us.
