Watch: UCD's John Heslin Pays Emotional Tribute To Dave Billings With Sigerson Man Of The Match Interview
By PJ Browne

On Saturday, UCD won their first Sigerson Cup in 20 years with a 0-10 to 2-2 win against DCU.

It was an event which would surely have brought a smile to Dave Billings' face.

Billings, who died in April of last year, spent 18 years as UCD Gaelic Games Executive.

Post-match, Westmeath inter-county player and top scorer in the game, John Heslin, paid tribute to Billings.

One man I have to mention before I go any further and that's Dave Billings. I came into the college in 2009 and he took me under his wing like I was another son.

He taught me so much. I had to try and hold back a few tears in preparation for the weekend because really, it's for Davey and I think everyone who has a UCD crest on them will support me in that.
