Michael Murphy skinning three Cork defenders on way to one of his best ever points

A sight for sore Donegal eyes.

A firing Michael Murphy equals a flying Donegal and with the Glenswilly ace rounding into form in this Allianz League campaign, Gaels from the hills will be buzzing for summer Sundays.

The 29-year-old made his eagerly anticipated seasonal bow in his county's League clash with Armagh two weekends ago and true to style, it didn't take him long to get going.

With Donegal struggling for inspiration, Declan Bonner called upon his fit again captain in the first half of that game and Murphy responded with 1-2 from play and a power packed performance that would eventually prove the difference between the sides.

Sunday and Donegal were on the road to Cork and Murphy was fit enough to start this time around.

They struggled in the first half in Páirc Uí Rinn with Cork heading into the interval with a five point lead but once Donegal kicked into gear, Cork had no response.

Murphy was the man who kick started the comeback and his solo effort just after the resumption was a score worthy of the admission fee alone.

After receiving a pass from Niall O'Donnell, Murphy brushes Thomas Clancy aside like he wasn't even there. Up next is Ian Maguire who's sent floating down the river after a delicious dummy before one of the corner backs is in too late with an attempted block.

You can't teach class.
