One of the all-time examples of GAA commitment occurred today when Kieran Molloy appeared off the bench in the Sigerson Cup final for NUIG - after winning the All-Ireland club semi-final with Corofin just over an hour earlier.

Molloy was one of the Galway champions' top performers as they advanced to the All-Ireland club final on St Patrick's Day after seeing off Moorefield, with the corner back making a quick getaway from O'Connor Park in Tullamore in order to play a part with his college in this afternoon's showpiece.

Molloy arrived at Trinity College's ground in Santry in enough time to make a surprise second half substitute appearance against UCD, with the game still in the melting pot.

There was a great online reaction to Molloy's huge show of commitment.
