Thats the one I was looking to see after this thread started last week, as I remember the picture of the Kerryman (DOS) fetching the ball was a qware leap, but I knew that there was one out there with Harte which looked like he was flying.
That picture is ridiculous,  hes 6ft in the air and hes going to catch the ball, unreal. Absolute magic.

Any one else reckon that, while it's obviously an exceptional leap, the angle the picture seems to have been taken from exaggerates the height a bit? Looks like it was taken from very close to ground level.

Jeeeeeeeeez Im not sure about that AFS..you just have to look at the lads around him to see how high he is off the ground, really dont think tits camers trickery at all!
Have looked at it a fair few times and don't think that it is exaggerated at all.  The momentum of the three involved are propelling McKenna into the air.  O'Shea's strength is lifting the Tyrone minor who has him by the throat and McKenna is getting some leverage of that tyrone player's leg.  A snapshot of perfect energy transfer.  That's not to take anything away from Niall-some concentration and desire to be up there and catch it.  Look at all the size of him compared to O'Shea!

Some leap! But I can't but notice the other Tyronie trying to strangle our lad!

As darkness fell this evening, the new floodlights in @AdrigoleGAA lit up the sky, as the were switched on for a game for the first time. Well done to all involved for all their hard work over the last few weeks, months and possibly longer.
