In this new series we tell the stories
of four very different GAA clubs
Thursday @ 8.00pm
With 2,500 clubs across Ireland, the GAA is the biggest, and perhaps the most important sports and cultural institution in the country. With a club in every parish the local club is the corner stone of the GAA and local communities. In this new series we tell the stories of four very different GAA clubs as they compete, battle for honours, and strive to survive the 2018 season. We join the communities and families of An Ghaeltacht in Kerry, Na Piarsaigh in Galway, Na Dúnaibh in Donegal agus Kilmacud Crokes in Dublin for the joys and the heartbreaks involved in supporting their home club.
Programme 3 – Thursday @ 8.00pm
The supporters of newly promoted ‘An Ghaeltacht’ enjoy the build up to their first round senior championship match against county champions Killarney Crokes. In Conamara, Na Piarsaigh ladies football team manage to field a team for their first match, but will it be enough to beat their local rivals. Kilmacud Crokes & Dublin intercounty hurler Fergal Whitely discusses the ‘club versus county’ debate as he does linesman for his club at a senior league match. As the Comórtas Peile na Gaeltachta nears, hosts Na Dúnaibh welcome its returning emigrants as they come for the club’s biggest day.
