TG4's Underdogs to take on Mayo next month

TG4's Underdogs will take on James Horan's Mayo next month.

The Irish-language broadcaster's reality TV show returns tonight to offer hopeful inter-county footballers the chance to test themselves at the top-level.

The series was revived last year but saw the Underdogs hammered by All-Ireland champions Dublin, 5-17 to 1-3.

This year, it's the turn of League champions and All-Ireland semi-finalists Mayo to tackle the Underdogs.

A new-look management team sees former Cork ladies footballer Valerie Mulcahy joined by Kerry All-Ireland winning captain and manager Mickey Ned O’Sullivan, and former Donegal footballer Kevin Cassidy.
