‘Hill 16’ Doc To Air On TG4 On All-Ireland Final Day
20 Sep 2012 : By Steve Cummins
Square One's 'Hill 16' doc will air this Sunday
TG4 are to broadcast a new documentary about Hill 16 this Sunday (September 23) to coincide with the All-Ireland football final.

Produced by Dublin-based production company Square One Productions, the 30-minute documentary tells the story of the most iconic structure in Irish sports through the fans who head for the Hill each year and the history of the structure known as Hill 16.

The programme includes some rare footage of the famous terrace and contributors include Tim Carey, author of ‘Croke Park: A History’, UCD sports historian Dr Paul Rouse and football personalities Ger Brennan, David Henry and Brian Mullins.

The documentary was produced and directed by Square One’s Shane Tobin and was commissioned by Rónán Ó Coisdealbha, head of sport at TG4, as part of the broadcaster’s Cogar strand.

Speaking ahead of the documentary’s broadcast this Sunday night at 9.30pm, Tobin said: “I can’t think of a more iconic structure in Irish history and one so interlinked with our national conscious and yet that so much remains unknown.

“We address the birth of the terrace and its renaming as Hill 16 in the 1930s to the 1960s but most of all we look at the link between the GAA fans and players who make it such a special place especially for Dublin GAA since the 1970s adding the vibrancy and colour to it but also placing huge pressure on it as a physical structure”.

The documentary will air this Sunday (September 23) on TG4 at 9.30pm and will be repeated on Monday at 8pm.
