WATCH: Behind the Gates Roscommon documentary part one is here

"Nobody is giving us a chance which is kind of silly, really, because it's a one-off championship final. You always have some sort of a kick."

Of all the seasons to make a Roscommon documentary, this was the one.


Player exodus, relegation, written off from every corner of the island. Revenge. Redemption.

From zeroes to heroes in the space of a few months and it was all captured brilliantly in this fascinating fly-on-the-wall series, brought to you by AIB.

The first part details Kevin McStay's thoughts on nobody giving the Rossies a chance ahead of the Connacht final with Galway. It shows a stinging rebuke he had to deliver to the team after a challenge game with Meath. And it captures the emotional moment Enda Smith stood in front of the squad and opened up about his brother Cian and his illness.


This is real-life feelings, all the frustrations and hopes that come with being involved in the county and all the hard work that goes into proving doubters wrong.

From training camps, gym sessions, meetings and intimate interviews, this Roscommon documentary has everything you could want out of a GAA show.

The second episode drops on Wednesday, 18 October.
