WATCH: League of Ireland wondergoal was so astounding, it had to be released early

Yep, that's the halfway line you're looking at

If you haven’t seen Conan Byrne’s scorcher against Bohemian’s, get ready for your jaw to hit the floor.

St Patrick’s Athletic ran out 4-0 winners over Bohemians in Dalymount Park on Friday night and there was no question over which one of the four goals was the best.

That accolade was claimed by Conan Byrne’s stellar effort from inside his own half.

After some sloppy forceful passes missed their mark, the ball fell to the 31-year-old in midfield. Seeing the goalkeeper off his line, Byrne decided to go for goal. He rocketed the ball first-time towards the opposition goal and it went sailing over the goalkeeper and into the back of the net.

Not a bad way to secure your 100th league goal. He went on to add his 101st later in the game, with Christy Fagan and Kurtis Byrne completing the scoring.

However, Conan Byrne’s first effort undoubtedly stole the show. It was so damn impressive, that the clip was released on Twitter before it was scheduled to be broadcast for the first time on Monday’s Soccer Republic.
