Earlier in the summer we went to Ballybofey, Donegal to interview All-Ireland winning coach Jim McGuinness. On that day we played our report on our struggling Underdog squad of St. Joes GAA, Kilteevan, Roscommon. Jim was so taken with their story, he said he would try & make it down to Kilteevan for a training session & a pep talk with the lads! Our own John Bella Reilly brings us this report.
