WATCH: Man gets off Luas and runs to try and catch it again at the next stop

This is some effort...

In the battle between man and machine, in the long run, we're hopelessly outgunned but we will strive to notch some small wins in our column.

This is one of these battles, where a man equipped with just his clothes, a GoPro and a hell of a lot of heart takes on the might of the Dublin Luas.

Conor Davenport from Bray, Wicklow decided to use what he was given and try to get off the Luas at the Central Park stop and run and catch it again at the Sandyford stop.

According to the Luas website, the journey time for the Luas from Central Park to Sandyford is two minutes and 30 seconds. Factor in the stop time at each stop and we'll add one more minute to that time.

From Google maps, the length between the two stops is 1.7km, although it's probably slightly shorter with the direct route Conor takes.

The video was the brainchild of Robin J Kavanagh, a videographer from Greystones, who shot and edited the video, and was inspired by a similar feat completed on the Tube in London.

They were helped on the day by their friend Emma Casey.

You could say that if Conor didn't have to stop at the traffic lights, he'd have had time to stop over for a soup and a sandwich.
