This is the fifth programme of a six-part series following some of GAA's best-known faces as they explore what their local clubs mean to them and the passion and commitment that keeps small communities going.

All-Ireland winning footballer Niall Cahalane whose ambition was nourished in the parish of Castlehaven, is just one of many who drive a three-hour round trip from Cork city several times a week to train and play for this club. From starting out as underdogs, this West Cork club has grown and maintained a place at the top table, winning five of the toughest county titles.
