A TG4 special on Donegal and Sean Mac Cumhaill’s legend Martin Griffin will be broadcast tomorrow.
‘Big Griff: Lánchúlaí’ will tell the tale of Griffin’s playing days at 4:15pm on Sunday.
The special was produced by Martin’s nephew, Nathan Griffin, who narrates the story of his career.
The gentle giant from the Twin Towns passed away in November 2011 aged just 67.
‘Big Griff’, as he was affectionately known to thousands of adoring Donegal fans, made a huge name for himself since his debut for the county in 1973.
He won three Ulster medals with Donegal over three decades – 1974, 1983 and in 1990.
He was also a member of the last MacCumhaills team to win a county championship, in 1977.
At the age of 36, he was recalled by Brian McEniff for the Ulster Final in 1990.
He attracted many admirers with his commanding performances at full back and mid-field.
The ‘Big Griff’ documentary made its world premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh, followed by the Kerry Film Festival, and will screen later this month at a film festival in Rome.
