Molloy has built an impressive resume over the last few years and was Galway referee of the year at the Football Awards in 2014.
He’s been on the intercounty circuit for four years having begun with the 2015 Connacht League. And his performances were rewarded with him getting to officiate the that year’s County Intermediate Football Final when Moycullen beat Athenry 1-10 to 0-9.

Molloy also oversaw three games in last year’s senior championship including the semi-final when Corofin nearly came unstuck against Annaghdown before going on an All-Ireland winning run.
Last September, Molloy was a linesman for the All-Ireland Minor Football Final when Kerry won their fourth title in-a-row against Derry. And his most recent appointment was Offaly’s 0-8 apiece draw against on Monday, 19th March.
The Allianz National Football League Final between Armagh and Fermanagh takes place on Saturday, 31st April. Throw-in at Croke Park is 5pm.
