Hurling fans absolutely adored RTÉ's new documentary on the beloved sport

Jaysus, parts of that were too emotional. Great stuff.

As soon as we heard the synopsis and saw the first trailer for The Game, we knew that we were in for something special.

This being said, we didn't expect to be practically bawling after seeing that opening montage!

After the two classic encounters that we saw at Croke Park, the old argument was made again that hurling is the finest sport in the world - each to their own on that point - but after seeing parts of The Game, it's impossible not to feel immense pride at the history of our beloved sport.

Be honest, did you get goosebumps when Micheál Ó Muircheartaigh said:  "The dead who shall live forever and the living who shall never die?"

What about Daithi Regan's account of Offaly lifting Liam MacCarthy or Dick Walsh, aged 99-years-old, who has been to every single All-Ireland Final?

These are the stories that make the game so special.

Ladies and gents, this is hurling..and people absolutely loved it.

Nail. Head. Hit.
