A standing ovation for a Junior 'A' footballer is a rare sight.
However, that's exactly what occurred in Páirc Charman on Sunday when Sarsfields full-forward Ciarán 'Burnie' Byrne scored a sensational 6-5 from play in the course of their emphatic 7-16 to 1-3 championship victory over St. Fintan's.
Supporters of the home team stood for a sustained round of applause as the towering attacker made his way to the dressing-rooms after one of the most amazing scoring feats seen in the county for many a long day.
Quite simply, 'Burnie' was on fire.
