A fear of helicopters and not being able to swim proved to be former Donegal star Eamon McGee’s undoing on RTE’s Ultimate Hell Week – The Professionals.
The Gaoth Dobhair man was one of 18 celebrities to sign up for the show to raise money for a variety of worthy causes.
Eamon’s chosen charity was the Donegal Domestic Violence Services.
He was pitted alongside a variety of other celebs including former Kerry star Darren O’Sullivan, singer Jake Carter, soccer star Stephanie Roche, former rugby star Peter Stringer and TV weatherman Derek Hartigan.
But unfortunately Eamon came up against two of his biggest fears helicopters and water.
Despite going up in the helicopter, the All-Ireland winner couldn’t bring himself to jump from the chopper into the sea.
A gutted Eamon expressed his disappointment on the show that he could not go further.
Hats off to Eamon for giving it a rattle.
