The Whole Country Loved The Brilliant "Players Of The Faithful" Documentary

The Whole Country Loved The Brilliant "Players Of The Faithful" Documentary

In a world of Dublin dominance, it's hard to imagine any other team in Leinster ever getting a look in again. But the achievements of a Leinster team of the past will get a lot of airing in 2019. Will anybody be able to do to Dublin in 2019 what Offaly did to Kerry in 1982?

Seamus Darby stopping Kerry's five-in-a-row is probably the most famous All-Ireland final of all time, and when you listen to the characters involved, or watch the footage from the time, it's easy to see why.

Players of the Faithful, a documentary about the extraordinary Offaly team of the early 80s that culminated in the 1982 All-Ireland title was broadcast on RTE Two last night and anyone watching with a connection to the midlands county couldn't help but be moved. In fact, any GAA person who saw the show seemed to absolutely love the trip down memory lane.
