Story Of The Offaly Men Who Killed Kerry’s 5-In-A-Row Dream Airs Tonight

Posted by


IF you feel like torturing yourself, then RTE will make your masochistic dreams come true tonight.

Relive one of the most heartbreaking moments in Kerry GAA history, when the men from Offaly  put a stop to Micko’s team’s dreams of a 5-in-a-row in ‘Players Of The Faithful’ tonight (Friday) at 9.30pm on RTE One.

It tells the story of Offaly’s surprise All-Ireland final victory over Kerry in 1982. It features interviews with the players involved and we can no doubt experience a painstaking analysis of Seamus Darby’s late goal — a mind and body-numbing experience if ever there was one (no, I’m still not over it!).

Seriously though, it should be an interesting watch. Just close your eyes when Darby gets the ball. Have a look at the preview below…if you dare…
