The West's Awake will be broadcast on TG4 at 21:30 on Wednesday 10th October.
The West's Awake is an exclusive fly on the wall documentary which tells the story of Connacht Rugby’s inaugural Heineken Cup journey in the 2011/ 2012 season.
With unprecedented access to the squad and management this one-hour film brings the audience on an emotional and sporting rollercoaster. From the modest Sportsground in Galway to the mighty Stade Ernest Wallon in Toulouse via the Stoop of London and Kingsholm in Gloucester, experience the agony and ecstasy of manager Eric Elwood and the Connacht Squad as they strive to compete against the cream of European Rugby in the face of overwhelming odds.
Join the players; Captain Gavin Duffy, Michael Swift, Ronan Loughney, John Muldoon and Johnny O’Connor as they line out for game after punishing game, the indefatigable manager Eric Elwood as he leads his charges, the die hard fans never wavering in the face of adversity and the pundits as their stories interweave with highlights of the games to tell a story not only about rugby but about passion, culture, community and a sense of belonging.
