There's an excellent documentary about Tommy Bowe on TV tonight

It's impossible not to love Tommy Boooooooowe!

There are certain sporting moments that every single Irish person can remember vividly. You know what we're talking about. Those moments when 30 years from now, when you're asked where you were when they happened, you can provide a detailed account of every single minute.

For any Irish rugby fan, the events that unfolded on March 21, 2009 will stay with them forever as the Grand Slam was won.

Every single player that featured throughout that Six Nations campaign was an absolute warrior, and while Ronan O'Gara's dramatic drop goal took the headlines, Tommy Bowe's lung-busting try got us all off our seats.

Hell, it also provided one of the greatest moments in the history of Irish commentary.

Since the game turned professional, it's arguable that the Monaghan man is up there with Brian O'Driscoll as the best finisher that Ireland has ever seen.

Aside from this, the Ulster star is widely regarded as one of the soundest skins to ever pull on the green jersey as his passion, enthusiasm and carefree nature has enamoured him to every rugby fan -regardless of provincial loyalty.

At 21:35 on RTE One, rugby fans will be able to get an in-depth look at one of the finest players to ever wear the green jersey.

In Tommy Bowe - The End Game, the filmmakers follow the former Ulster, Ireland and British& Irish Lions winger in the run-up to his retirement as he looks to a future beyond sport.

Throughout the documentary, we're going to get a look at Bowe's worries, fears and personal challenges as he nears the end of his career. Aside from this, Bowe will also meet former sports stars such as AP McCoy, Paul McGrath and Derval O'Rourke to find out what retirement holds.

If this documentary is even 1% as good as Bowe was when he took to the field, we're in for a treat.

Tommy Bowe - The End Game starts at 21:35 on RTE One.
