A new one-hour documentary from Loosehorse for TG4 that tells the story of how hurling ‘redefined itself as a sport in the 1990s to truly become our national game’.
Linda Ni Ghriofa writes:
For over a century, the hurling spoils were shared among the traditional three superpowers of Cork, Kilkenny and Tipperary. As the decade began there was no sign of the aristocracy being unseated. Then, in five minutes in 1994, the hurlers of Offaly sparked a revolution.
Along came a collection of upstarts to destroy the old order, and go down in history as Ireland’s most charismatic, colourful and enduring personalities….
…Diarmuid Lyng, for whom the ‘90s provided the inspiration for his own stellar inter-county career with Wexford, is an authentic and affectionate Narrator.
Réabhlóid GAA is the story of how, in one decade a sport, and a country, changed forever.
