After a ten year hiatus, the epic TG4 series 'Underdog' is returning to television. The show pits unknown Gaelic football players against a top inter-county side and is currently advertising for participants.
In the past the show has featured Kerry's Kieran Donaghy and Cork's Pearse O'Neill. For those of you who need your memory refreshed, the show gathers a group of unknown players and has them managed and coached by high profile GAA stars in preparation for a clash with an inter-county team.
