Croke Park Lives

2010, 52 Minutes

The All Ireland Football Finals, September 2009. On the pitch, a ferocious battle for the Sam Maguire Cup. In the stands, 82,000 spectators cheer and weep. And behind the scenes, Peter, Pat, Robert, Shakila, Lenny, Pauline, Frank, Seamus, Amy and their two thousand colleagues make it happen.

Croke Park Lives takes us into the kitchens and canteens, reveals the secrets of the event control room, slips into briefings and down tunnels, into a place we have never been before, backstage, on the biggest day of the year. It brings us to meet the people of one of the world's great stadiums and, for an hour, become part of one day in their lives.

Made with the support of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland for RTE
