Project Description

For a small country, Ireland has been blessed with some of the world’s best sports people and some of the world’s best sports stories.

But there are few greater than Mick O’Dwyer – a national treasure and the most successful manager in the history of Gaelic Football. Harvesting previously untold tales, this natural storyteller brings the viewer on a unique journey through Irish history – from the War of Independence to a modern area of commercialised sport.

MICKO tells the story of the GAA’s most loved legend, through his eyes and with his voice.
