The documentary follows the pupils of St Paul’s Academy, a comprehensive school in one of the UK’s most deprived areas, as they take on the challenge of learning Gaelic football and competing in the prestigious Féile Peil na nÓg.
In this clip from the documentary Féile Dreams, we meet one of the star players, Victor. If he can keep himself off detention and out of trouble he could get a place on the team and the championships in Ireland.
Edited by Emer O’Clery in Big Red Engine.
