TRIBUTES HAVE BEEN paid to the brilliant Christy Ring documentary that was aired on RTÉ last night.

Produced by Colm O’Callaghan and award-winning director Gerry Nelson, ‘Christy Ring: Man And Ball’ explores the life and sporting career of hurling icon Christy Ring.

The show contains some excellent footage and images of the Cork legend in action, as well as interviews with esteemed GAA figures including fellow Rebel men Donal O’Grady and Donal Óg Cusack.

It also includes an interesting segment where current Cork star Patrick Horgan attempts a few shots at the goals with the model of hurl that was used in Ring’s era.

The documentary comes at a great time in the aftermath of the All-Ireland SHC final and received plenty of praise in the GAA community.

Brilliant show on Christy Ring. Class footage & interviews. They should give Paul Rouse a mini series & let him do a look of different Irish sports stars of the past #ChristyRing
