This Sporting Life
This Sporting Life tells the story of six of Ireland's most eminent sportsmen and women - Christy O'Connor Sr, Catherina McKiernan, Trevor Brennan, Tony Cascarino, Paul Carberry and Dessie Gallagher. The series looks at their greatest achievements in sport but also chronicles the all too human stories behind some of the sporting headlines. The six talk candidly about their successes and failures in arenas where so much is expected by their fans and the public in general. In allowing their own story to be told by themselves, the series gets to the heart of each subject and demonstrates that, in spite of being put on pedestals of varying height, they, as all of us, have to deal with what fate has in store for them.
