‘A Game for the Gods’: Check out RTÉ’s brilliant hurling documentary The Game

RTÉ’s new three-part hurling series ‘The Game’ is not to be missed!

The Game: “The dead who shall live forever and the living who shall never die?”

As if we didn’t have enough hurling action from last weekend’s thrilling All-Ireland Senior Hurling Semi-Finals, RTÉ treated us yesterday evening as their new hurling documentary The Game was aired.

From watching the trailer for The Game, it had us bursting with anticipation to see it, and it did not disappoint. This three-part series explores the history of hurling and the significance that it has in Irish society. It features interviews with notable GAA figures from Séan Óg Ó hAilpín to 99-year-old Dick Walsh who has been to every hurling final since 1931.

It is both emotive and poignant and truly worth the watch. Did anyone else have chills when Micheál Ó Muircheartaigh said:  “The dead who shall live forever and the living who shall never die?”

Another two more episodes of The Game are to come, and it is fair to say, most people can’t wait. Check out the reactions from Twitter below. What did you think of The Game?

If you missed The Game, it is now available on the RTÉ player. We already can’t wait for next week’s episode which will be broadcast on Monday 6th August at 9.30pm on RTÉ.
