KILLESHIN GAA Club will be firmly put on the map in the weeks and months ahead after the club was selected to take part in RTE’s Celebrity Bainisteoir

The invitation was given after a meeting between members of the club and Animo Productions, who produce the show for RTE.

Celebrity Bainisteoir is a GAA reality programme which is now in it’s fourth series and regularly features in the Top Ten of RTE programmes with over 600,000 viewers per episode.

The series will follow eight teams from around the country and their celebrity managers. There will be four quarter finals, two semi finals and the grand finale, which will be played in Parnell Park in Dublin. The games will take place between August and November. The filming for the series will take place from July onwards. It is a knockout competition, so we will have to keep winning to progress.

As of yet Killeshin do not know who their rivals will be as they haven’t been chosen. They also won’t know the identity of our celebrity bainisteoir until the first training session.

The venue for the first game will be chosen by a sports challenge between the two competing clubs. The winner get to play in their home venue.
