In the Sports category, Irish projects ‘Jump Boys’; a horse racing documentary which follows top jockeys Ruby Walsh, Barry Geraghty and Davy Russell as they compete at various different tournaments; and ‘Rás Tailteann - Rothai an tSaoil’; a cycling documentary featuring first-hand accounts from riders and organisers, will go head to head, while shortlisted for Arts awards are three Irish projects; ‘John Doherty - Ar Leirg na Gaoithe’, ‘Steip le Tura’ and ‘The Undertones - Here Comes The Summer’.
