Underdogs

  • Blake Forkan from Killtimagh will attempt to make the final cut for the Underdogs team that will play All Ireland Champions, Dublin.

    Blake is originally from Killtimagh but now plays his football with St. Eunan's in Letterkenny. He will be hoping to hold on to the position of goalkeeper.

    Supermac's has announced that it will sponsor Underdogs on TG4.

    The GAA show returned to screens recently after a 10-year absence and the producers are on the lookout for the next big stars.

    Players are put through their paces on the show by 3 All Ireland winning players - Galway's Ray Silke, Kerry's Paul Galvin and Cork's Valerie Mulcahy.

    This series follows unknown players, as they are trained and mentored by the coaches before they face the All Ireland Champions, Dublin, in October.

    The previous series of Underdogs was responsible for launching many present inter-county stars and All-Ireland winners' careers including Kerry's Kieran Donaghy and Cork's Pearse O'Neill.

  • The Underdogs will be vying to overcome the All-Ireland champions Dublin in Parnell Park tonight.

    Kiltimagh native Blake Forkan will be between the posts for the Underdogs while Ballaghaderreen's Cormac Doohan will also be involved.

    The game gets underway at 7.30pm.
