Anthony Molloy has known the climb to glory, and the painful descent.
Molloy famously led Donegal to their first All-Ireland football title when the county defeated Dublin in 1992.
The Ardara clubman played for 12 years in the green and gold, amassing a record total of 123 appearances. He also became a fixture in the New York GAA scene during this time, winning two NY Championships with the Donegal club in the Big Apple, in 1986 and ’92.
A holder of three Ulster titles, Molloy was not only team captain, but he dominated in the middle of the field on the team brilliantly built by Brian McEniff during the 1980s and 90s.
He has spoken publicly about the demons he had to contend with at the end of his career. He is a member of Donegal County Council, representing the Fianna Fail party.
