Celebrity Bainisteoir

On Friday the 8th of June we received the fantastic news that our club St Patrick’s will be getting the once in a life time opportunity of participating in the RTE production of Celebrity Bainisteoir. This news came on the back of many phone calls, emails and meetings with the production company over the last 5 months.


Celebrity Bainisteoir is a GAA reality programme which is now in it's 5th series and regularly features in the Top Ten of RTE programmes with over 600,000 viewers per episode. The series will follow 8 teams from around the country and their celebrity managers. There will be 4 quarter finals, 2 semi finals and the grand finale, which will be played in Parnell Park in Dublin. The games will take place between August and October. The filming for the series will take place from the end of June onwards. It is a knockout competition, so we will have to keep winning to progress. As of yet we do not know who our rivals will be as they haven't been chosen. The identity of our Bainisteoir is unknown and will remain so until the big reveal day on Saturday the 30th of June in Bro Leo Park, Tullow. The reveal will be a huge day for the community & surrounding areas with loads of fun activities planned, there will be something for everyone, and it promises to be a real family day out. The reveal will be followed by a training session with the Bainisteoir. Times are yet to be confirmed.


The venue for the first game will be chosen by a sports challenge between the two competing clubs. Four of our best athletes will be chosen to compete in this event against the opposing team. The winner will get to play in their home venue.


By appearing in Celebrity Bainisteoir we will receive massive exposure throughout the country and we will do our best to make the most of this opportunity.


It will also be a great community event and hopefully everyone will come down to the training sessions when the cameras are there and most importantly that they come to support the team on the big day.
