LONG BEFORE HULK Hogan or Sheamus ever came on the scene, West Cork native Danno O’Mahoney made waves in professional wrestling.

Ballydehob native O’Mahoney took the wrestling world by storm in the 1920s and 30s, selling out arenas across America and earning an incredible $100,000 contract.

Directed and produced by Irish filmmaker Shane Tobin, the new documentary showing tonight on TG4 (from 9.30pm) looks at his unique rise.
