The documentary also explores the personal pain away from the pitch during the years of dealing with his father’s death, as well as looking back on the testimonial controversy.

Andrew O’Shaughnessy; an extraordinary underage talent whose career was cut short by Multiple Sclerosis.

The programme looks back on O’Shaughnessy’s extraordinary underage career, the brief success under Richie Bennis, the controversy under Justin McCarthy, and how O’Shaughnessy has rebuilt his life since receiving the devastating diagnosis. Participants include Andrew O'Shaughnessy, Eimear O'Shaughnessy, Denis Ring, Stephen Lucey, Maurice O'Brien and Gráinne McElwain.
