Project Description

Each year, wherever green is worn, Irish people gather on the third Sunday in September for a real celebration of sport. Kitchen radios and sitting room televisions across the world tune into events in Croke Park regardless of county allegiance. It’s not only a day for the two finalists, it’s a day for all to savour.

All-Ireland Day goes behind the scenes with some of the key protagonists as they prepare for and experience the biggest day of the sporting lives. Brought to you by Loosehorse, one of Ireland’s leading indies, the documentary captures the essence of the football final by following a select group of characters all with their vested interests in the big day.

It features the big match Referee David Coldrick, a legendary Dublin GAA family in the Rocks, and Kerry selector on the day Cian O’Neill. We’re in the commentary box with Radio Kerry’s Weeshie Fogarty and RTÉ’s Darragh Maloney and we follow young Michael Joyce from the Artane Band. We celebrate Cork’s 1990 Jubilee success with the Kerins Family who remember the passing of beloved goalkeeper John Kerins.
