Celebrity Bainisteoir

In this, the opening episode of Celebrity Bainisteoir: The Rivals, our eight brand new wanna-be bainisteoiri gather in a wet and windy DCU for a day long GAA Bootcamp. From classroom based theory and on pitch practicalities to an address from GAA legend Michael O'Muircheartaigh and taking charge of thirty 12 year olds from Ballymun Kickhams it's a full on baptism of GAA fire. Our celebrities also learn about the changes to this years series, how if they loose they become the winners assistant and how the challenge for the all-important home advantage rests squarely on their shoulders. Under the watching eyes of our two resident mentors, Ciaran Whelan and Liam Kearns, we see Paddy Doherty's 'unique' way of telling a player he won't make the team, how Calum Best doesn't know what GAA stands for, how Pippa O'Connor thinks there's 29 on a team, Stephen Ireland's partner Jessica Lawlor's declaration that she wants him to done the green jersey and how model Rozanna Purcell's choice of pitch wear isn't typically GAA.
