Sports Film Of The Week: Barry McGuigan - Sports Life Stories

This week’s film takes a look at the Clones Cyclone

Title: Barry McGuigan- Sports Life Stories

Director: Gabriel Clarke

Release Date: 2012

Plot: Most people would be familiar with Barry McGuigan but this excellent documentary takes an in depth look at how the Clones Cyclone came to be.

Topics covered include his start to boxing, how he tried to please both Catholics and Protestants in his area and his acrimonious split with manager Barney Eastwood.

A particularly poignant scene involves McGuigan recounting his brother’s suicide and the impact it had on him.  Here it is in full and it is definitely worth your time to explore what McGuigan is really like and to get a full picture of his career.
