THERE WERE SOME stunning contenders for Soccer Republic’s 2017 Goal of the Season competition as a bumper edition saw 15 shortlisted for the accolade.

From Conan Byrne’s Dublin derby strike from inside his own half against Bohemians, to Paddy McCourt’s timeless trickery returning to grace the League of Ireland, to Patrick McEleney’s individual brilliance week after week — the scope was endless.

We had a brand new champion this year as 2017 saw the title not return to Oriel Park for the first time in four years, with John Caulfield leading Cork City to their first league title in 12 years.

Sunday’s FAI Cup final at Lansdowne Road presents the showpiece finale as the curtain comes down on yet another entertaining season in the #greatestleagueintheworld.

Below are Soccer Republic’s 15 contenders for this year’s Goal of the Season competition.
