THE OPENING EPISODE of RTÉ’s documentary series The Game aired last night to widespread acclaim from the viewing public.


A three-part series which has been in the making for five years, The Game explores the art of hurling through the eyes of some of its biggest names.

It couldn’t have arrived at a better time with the country still basking in the afterglow of those two extraordinary All-Ireland hurling semi-finals in Croke Park at the weekend.

Hurling stars past and present such as Michael Duignan, Henry Shefflin and Austin Gleeson were among those to voice their approval.

You can watch back the first episode on the RTÉ Player here.
