TG4’s legendary GAA series ‘Underdogs’ is back

TG4’s legendary GAA series ‘Underdogs’ is back. The search is on again to a find a squad of ambitious men with enough drive, skill and passion to take on one of the country’s greatest gaelic football teams.

Like last year, players will be chosen by a panel of expert selectors who make up the management team. This year there will be a few fresh faces will be stepping up to the sideline.

Underdogs launched the careers of a number of All-Ireland champions, not least Kerry powerhouse Kieran Donaghy and Cork’s Pearse O’Neill. Could you be the next star to follow in their footsteps?

 

TG4 Head of Sport Rónán Ó Coisdealbha said:

“We are looking forward to a new series of the Underdogs which ties in with our extensive year round GAA coverage. This series has always given the opportunity to club players to showcase their talent on a national stage which may result in them becoming future All-Ireland medallists as previous Underdogs have.”

 

This is a chance to be trained and managed by legends of the game. A chance for unknown players to go up against some of the country’s best gaelic footballers.

 

Who can apply?

  • Male players who have never played Gaelic football at a senior intercounty GAA championship level.
  • All applicants must be 18 years of age on/by the 1st May 2019 to be eligible.
  • Players must currently be registered with a GAA club.

TÁ ‘UNDERDOGS’ TG4 AR AIS DO 2019!

 

Underdogs, sraith chlúiteach CLG TG4, ar ais do 2019. Táthar ag tóraíocht arís agus ag iarraidh teacht ar ghrúpa fear atá cumasach, díocasach agus uaillmhianach go leor le haghaidh ar thabhairt ar cheann de na foirne peile Gaelaí is fearr sa tír.

 

Mar ab ionann le sraith na bliana seo caite, is painéal saineolaithe a bheidh ar an bhfoireann bainistíochta, agus beidh grúpa nua roghnóirí mór le rá ar an taobhlíne i mbliana.

 

Chuir Underdogs dlús le gairm roinnt seaimpíní Uile-Éireann, fear mór Chiarraí Kieran Donaghy agus Pearse O’Neill Chorcaí ina measc. An bhféadfadh an rud céanna a bheith i ndán duitse?

 

Deir Rónán Ó Coisdealbha, Ceannaire Spóirt TG4:

“Tá muid ag súil go mór leis an tsraith nua Underdogs, mar chuid dár gclúdach cuimsitheach de chúrsaí CLG le linn na bliana. Tugann an tsraith seo deis iontach d’imreoirí club a gcumas a thaispeáint ar ardán náisiúnta, agus seans go bhfeicfear amach anseo iad ag buachan bonn uile Éireann, mar atá déanta ag roinnt Underdogs roimhe seo.”

 

Seo do sheans dul i mbun traenála in éineacht le laochra móra an chluiche agus a bheith faoina stiúir. Is deis é d’imreoirí nach bhfuil eolas ar bith ag an bpobal orthu aghaidh ar thabhairt ar roinnt de na báireoirí is fearr sa tír.

 

Cé atá in ann iarratas a dhéanamh?

  • Imreoirí fir nár imir peil Ghaelach ag an leibhéal idirchontae i gcraobh na sinsear riamh.
  • Ní mór do gach iarratasóir a bheith 18 mbliana d’aois an/faoin 1 Bealtaine 2019 le bheith incháilithe.
  • Ní mór d’imreoirí a bheith cláraithe le cumann/club CLG i láthair na huaire.

 

Fáilteoidh TG4 agus Adare Productions roimh iarratais anois do shraith 2019 de Underdogs. Beidh trialacha náisiúnta ar siúl i mí Aibreáin 2019. Is féidir le himreoirí dul chuig www.tg4.ie/underdogschun iarratas a dhéanamh.
