TV programme on Athlone man to be screened tonight
Fresh from his appearance on RTE's The Ray D'Arcy Show on Saturday night, Athlone man Paddy Merrigan will be the subject of a TG4 programme tonight.
The programme is part of the award-winning Finné documentary series.
On the show, Merrigan chronicles how he struggled with his mental health, his meteoric rise to fame as a jockey, his subsequent difficulties with the sport and his recent return.
It promises to be rivetting view.
The programme will be shown on TG4 at 9.30pm on October 23.
Here's a preview of the show. (Strong language warning)
