Anthony Molloy (born 28 May 1962) is a former Gaelic footballer.


Born in Ardara, County Donegal, Molloy played Gaelic football with his local club Ardara and was a member of the Donegal senior inter-county team from the 1980s until the 1990s. Molloy captained Donegal to their very first All-Ireland title in 1992.[1] He famously exclaimed "Sam's for the hills" as he did so.[2] He won an All Star in 1992 as well. He played against Cavan in the 1983 Ulster final, won by Donegal.[3] He is the uncle of C. J. Molloy.[4]

In 2013, he was one of six nominees for the position of vice-chairman of the Donegal County Board executive.[5]
