Nothing was stopping Cillian O'Connor from making this pick up

Galway would have to try a lot harder to stop Cillian O'Connor from doing his thing.

Cillian O'Connor wasn't exactly the most well-liked player on the pitch during the Connacht semi-final against Galway at Pearse Stadium on Sunday.

He received his fair share of criticism for the play that saw Thomas Flynn get black-carded.

Some gave him credit for forcing the block from the Galwegian when he appeared to not have a hope of getting to the ball first.

Others felt that the call by the referee to show the black card to Flynn was questionable.

Quite a few people thought what O'Connor did was very cynical though.

Regardless of your stance on that challenge, there was one moment where O'Connor pulled off an impressive feat while managing to maintain his footing in the process.

At the sideline, while being pulled and dragged by a Galway player, he only had eyes for the ball. Even with his jersey being gripped tightly by another man, he kept his balance and pulled off this outrageous pick up.
