People seriously enjoyed the Katie Taylor documentary on TV last night
Taylor is a national treasure.
Released in Irish cinemas in late October 2018, Katie was a fantastic documentary. If you missed it in the cinema, or just wanted to watch it again, it was aired on RTÉ on Tuesday night.
And if you did love it, you definitely weren't alone.
The movie has won Best Irish Feature Documentary at the Galway Film Fleadh, as well as being runner-up for Best Documentary at the Dublin Film Critic's Circle Awards at the end of 2018.
But it wasn't just the critics who loved it, everyone who tuned in last night seemed to love it too:

The #Katie Taylor documentary is incredible for showing the nuance, the pain and the grit of a world-class athlete.
Watch it on player if you're not watching it now.

There is a real role model for kids, a hard working athlete, honest, humble woman, never let the fame change her. Forget your reality stars, Katie Taylor is a true hero #Katie

No flashy cars,
No tacky mansion,
No tailored suits,
No bloated ego,
Just pure class.#Katie
