Goal of the championship? Michael Murphy's hand of god carves Galway apart

HE MAY NOT have been fully fit but Michael Murphy demonstrated why he’s widely regarded as one of the best footballers in the country with a stunning piece of skill during Donegal’s win over Galway.

McHugh did the rest, slotting emphatically past Brian O’Donoghue, and Donegal were on their way to an All-Ireland quarter-final tie against Mayo next Saturday.
