Cork’s Cahalane scorches through Tipp defence to score wonder goal in All-Ireland U21 final

CORK’S CONOR CAHALANE scored a sensational goal for his side in the All-Ireland U21 hurling final against Tipperary on Sunday.

Cahalane — who was a late inclusion in the Cork team before throw-in — gathered the ball at midfield towards the end of the first half and proceeded to go on a solo-run through the Tipp cover.

Heading straight for the Tipperary goals, nobody was able to disrupt his run as he took the ball out wide and crashed his shot past goalkeeper Barry Hogan and into the back of the net.

It was a superb individual effort which left the scoreline reading 1-7 to 1-5 in favour of Cork.

Jake Morris scored Tipperary’s goal in the first half from the penalty spot.

Mark Kehoe was fouled by Cork defender Mark Coleman after 13 minutes, which allowed Morris to step up and convert the opportunity with a fine strike.

Cahalane comes from a distinguished sporting family in Cork.

His brother Damien plays with the Cork senior hurlers and was lining out at full-back in their All-Ireland SHC semi-final defeat to Limerick.

His sister Meabh has played on All-Ireland camogie winning teams for the county while his younger sibling Jack was involved with the Cork minors this year.

Meanwhile, Cahalane’s father Niall has won All-Ireland SFC medals for the rebels.
