Video: Club footballer kicks eight 45s and a 55 metre free over in 94 seconds

It's easy to appreciate the importance of having an accurate 45 taker in your team when you see the difficulty inter-county teams have finding them... it makes this video all the more amazing.

Paul Keane from the Ballerin GAA Club in Derry shows incredibly consistent technique to kick eight 45s and one kick from 55 metres in less than 100 seconds and he also managed to squeeze in an effort that drifted narrowly wide.

Footballers the length and breadth of the country would give their left arm for that kind of conversion rate.

If you think you are up to the challenge of bettering Paul's awe-inspiring exploits or you want to throw down a challenge for others to take on send your Youtube link to
