Legend: Priest and GAA player Fr Vinny Stapleton scores point then subs himself to go and say Mass




A GAA playing priest subbed himself during a hurling match because he was scheduled to say Mass.

Fr Vinny Stapleton subbed himself at around the 45 minutes mark because he had to leave and say mass in Tipperary at the weekend. Fr Vinny managed to even score a point at the 26th minute prior to changing from one uniform to another.

The Borris-Ileigh player had to call on another player as he couldn’t leave his Mass attendents waiting.
