'The Game' Again Left The Nation Proud And Weepy

'The Game' Again Left The Nation Proud And Weepy

It's not often that RTÉ properly fulfils its remit as a public service broadcaster, but its hurling documentary series The Game is up there with the finest work the station has created. Ahead of Sunday's All-Ireland hurling final, another episode of The Game was aired last night called 'The Big Show'. The episode focuses on the glory and pain of All-Ireland final day and includes some footage that wasn't used in the original three episodes. We started last August in Croke Park with Limerick winning Liam MacCarthy and along the way met Daithi Regan, Richie Stakelum, Sambo, Sean Óg and so many other legends.

Proud men and women speaking emotively about their famous game: it was just an extraordinary watch. Twitter was flooded with proud tears last night. If you want to experience it all again, the episode will re-air on Sunday evening at 8:30pm and is also available on the RTÉ Player.
