GAA player scores a header in today's Ballinderry-Donagh clash

An Ulster U-21 game was lit up by the amusing moment this afternoon.

IT’S NOT OFTEN that you see a soccer-style header scored in GAA games.

However, it did in fact happen in today’s Ulster U-21 match between Ballinderry and St Patrick’s Donagh at Creggan Kickhams.

The Ballinderry Shamrocks player demonstrated some fine improvisation when the opportunity arose, much to the audible amusement of the game’s spectators.

And you can view the video of the incident in question here.
