Hayes is one of ten nominees for the TG4 award.
With 53.26 on the clock in the Munster final with Tipperary, Kyle Hayes had possesion in his hand inside his own half.
With momentum fully with the Shannonsiders after overturning a nine point deficit, all would have expected Kyle Hayes to play the ball down the flank towards Limerick’s imperious forward line.
But few, if any, are built like Kyle Hayes.
Collecting a handpass from Cian Lynch inside his own 65′, Hayes showed the country why he is one of the best as he drove past the onlooking Tipp contingent before firing the ball into the net just ten seconds later.
A moment of genius that was instantly hailed by Marty Morrissey as the “goal of the year.”
Hayes’ effort is one of ten shortlisted by TG4 in this year’s goal of the year category. The Kildimo Pallaskenry faces competition in the shape of Tony Kelly, Dessie Hutchinson, Aoife Doyle, Walter Walsh and Lee Chin to name a few.
