Title: Thank GAA It's Friday

Brand new weekly GAA magazine show. In the first programme Darragh shares his memories of Kerry-Cork clashes over their years while in hurling we spend a morning in the company of Dublin's Ryan O'Dwyer as he prepares for the Dubs' defence of their Leinster hurling title

Brought to you by the same people that produced the iconic Breaking Ball strand, the show's creators promise a weekly act of worship at the GAA's broad church. From raging hot controversies, to warm human interest stories, from breaking news to unforgettable moments of years gone by and grassroots issues in parishes at home and abroad, Thank GAA It's Friday will combine sharp journalism, entertainment and top of the range production values.

On the eve of the Munster football final, the first episode travels to the Kingdom to reminisce with Darragh Ó Sé shares his memories of Kerry-Cork clashes over their years.

In hurling, we spend a morning in the company of Dublin's Ryan O'Dwyer as he prepares for the Dubs' defence of their Leinster hurling title. His epic Championship adventure last year ended in tears when his red card proved a major turning point in All-Ireland semi-final defeat to Jimmy Barry Murphy's Rebels. This year the Tipperary native is determined to make amends.

Meanwhile, in Killimor, County Galway, the Larkin family supplied hurleys for players in the first All-Ireland final in 1887 and they are still in business. TJ Larkin and his sons Damien and Francis produce upwards of 20,000 hurls a year and export them all over the world. They are hoping to see their products used in another All-Ireland final this year, with Galway's Damien Hayes just one of the players who swears by their ash.
