Cork's Conor Hourihane scores a cracker for Barnsley

Conor Hourihane's stock continues to rise and rise.

The Bandon native has been in red hot form for Barnsley in the Championship as they continue to climb the table - the Tykes are now just four points off the play off spots after yesterday's 1-0 win away to Nottingham Forest.

And it was skipper Hourihane who won all three points for his side with this moment of absolute magic.

Rumours abound about Hourihane's future, with reports this morning suggesting that Aston Villa are readying a bid of £8m, while his performances in the red shirt of Barnsley are surely catching the eye of Martin O'Neill - the 25 year old has yet to be capped for the Boys in Green.

Although with these kind of goals and with the performances Hourihane is turning in on a regular basis, it looks like it's only a matter of time before we see him in a green shirt.
