Title: Ireland’s Grand Slam Journey 2009

Plot: We all remember it like it was yesterday. Ireland ended a 61-year wait to win the Grand Slam during a momentous month of Irish sport back in 2009.

An IFTA award-winning documentary produced and directed for RTÉ by Dave Berry and Nathan Nugent, it features footage of the games, from the win over France at Croke Park to that fateful day in Cardiff, with input from Declan Kidney, his coaching staff, the players and journalist Gerry Thornley.
