Colin O'Brien showed incredible courage to line out for Nemo Rangers in yesterday's All-Ireland club SFC final, just a day after the funeral of his father, Tommy.

Tommy 'Tucker' O'Brien passed away peacefully on Wednesday and was laid to rest in Douglas Cemetery on Friday morning. In spite of this, his grief-stricken son played the full game for Nemo in their St. Patrick's Day defeat to Corofin at Croke Park.
