TG4 Underdogs are back




series starts on Thursday 20 October on TG4 @ 10pm “Underdogs”
is back – 

Last year’s team beat the All-Ireland Football Champions,
Kerry. This year, a team of hurlers will be put together
to take on the mighty Kilkenny on their home turf. It’s
the ‘Dogs against the Cats….. Last year, the Underdogs
capped a hugely successful series with a sensational victory
over the All-Ireland Football Champions, Kerry in their
own back yard. Now it’s time for the clash of the ash.

In December 2005, the Hurling Underdogs team will take on
Kilkenny on their home turf. It’s the Dogs against the Cats.
This time around the team will be trained by Eamon Cregan
of Limerick, Pat Fleury of Offaly and Cathal Moore of Galway.
Between them, they have played, managed and won All-Irelands
in each of the last four decades. There are a number of
fresh aspects to the programme this year, one of which involves
weekly player eliminations. This will ensure that players
are kept on their toes and are constantly aiming to impress
the selectors. Come December, we will see a panel of 24
determined players.

The first of seven programmes will detail the trials, the
selection process, and how this years’ Underdogs panel came
to fruition! In this first episode viewers will see anxiety
and worry grip the selectors when they assess the players,
from a wide range of clubs and counties, that are available
to them. The three begin to wonder if they have taken on
an impossible task. The challenge is clear. The heat is
on. This year’s selectors can be seen chatting with Páidí
Ó Lionáird on Árdán (TG4, Saturday 15th Oct @ 10pm) before
the first programme airs on TG4 Thursday 20 October.
