PLAYERS OF THE FAITHFUL
Friday 28th of December, 9.30 pm, RTÉ One.
Players of the Faithful is the story of the Offaly team that famously ended Kerry’s bid to become the first county to win five All Ireland football titles in a row in 1982. With contributions from the key men involved, it tells the story of a county that capitalised on high levels of employment for young men in 1980s Ireland to shock Irish sport in the most memorable All Ireland Final. The achievements of these men have become legend. Now they tell the story behind the legend in their own words.
