TG4’s Underdogs series returns to our TV screens tonight, September 12, and this year’s programme will feature a footballer from Longford!

The first episode of the new series kicks off from 9:30pm tonight on TG4 and making an appearance is none other than Ballymahon GAA senior footballer Kyle Fitzmaurice. 

Kyle is hoping to showcase his talents with the aim of making the Longford senior panel. He will come up against the cream of the crop of the GAA, while hoping to impress the new management team of Mickey Ned O’Sullivan, Kevin Cassidy and former Cork Ladies footballer, Valerie Mulcahy, to earn his place in the squad.

Aspiring county footballers will be put through their paces with one or more player dropped from the panel each week, as management seek to get the squad size down to 28-strong ahead of the penultimate game of the series in October. 

Best of luck to Kyle ahead of his GAA journey!
