WATCH: Dundalk star Patrick McEleney scores one of the best goals we've seen all year
Patrick McEleney has shined brightly since he joined Dundalk at the end of 2015.
Former Derry player Patrick McEleney was awarded man of the match for his performance against Drogheda on Friday, as his side ran out 6-0 winners.
He also scored one of the most incredible goals we've seen this year.
With Soccer Republic being the only League of Ireland highlight show, goals are normally saved until Monday night.
When something as special as this comes along, though, there's no point keeping it under lock and key.
The 24-year-old produced something special in the rout against Dundalk's bitter rivals.
Attacking midfielder McEleney takes on two men, dummies a shot and then produces an absolutely delicious chip.
Drink this in.

And the reaction was brilliant.

For the sake of the other 11 teams in the league, we wish we could say this is the first time that he has embarrassed defenders like that but it's not.
