Favourite hurling goals of all time

Whether it’s brute-force power, some sleight of hand, fleet of foot, or some form of sorcery that had been unknown up until that moment, this is what draws us in.

We all have our favourites, and perhaps we’re not always able to explain fully why they are such.

Is it the sepia-tinged memory of the day? The tingles in the spine? The relief or the rush? Perhaps it’s awe or admiration of technique?

For whatever reason, certain scores are special to people for their own reasons.
