Huge Plaudits For TG4's Powerful Tyrone GAA Documentary

Huge Plaudits For TG4's Powerful Tyrone GAA Documentary
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

'Tír Eoghain: The Unbreakable Bond' aired tonight and it was powerful.

In a year jam-packed with superb GAA documentaries, the TG4 production, which was supported by Northern Ireland Screen, produced another terrific contribution as it told the remarkable and tragic tale of the Tyrone minor teams of 1997 and 1998.

It was a group touched by extraordinary personal tragedy yet managed to not only survive through the adversity but strive. The show was widely praised by viewers.

Central to the programme was the contribution of Mickey Harte. The Tyrone native and his son, Mark, spoke articulately and honestly about the difficulty they and their team-mates went through. It was a stunning insight into the make-up of a special Tyrone team and one of the game's most successful managers.

It did not seek to diminish the importance of football in relation to real life but contextualize it, demonstrating the solace and comfort a close-knit team offers.
