    Donal Óg Cusack’s Gay Rights Documentary To Air Next Week

    The Sunday Game will not return for several months but RTÉ hurling analyst Donal Óg Cusack will be making an appearance on the national broadcaster in the coming days.

    Cusack has a gay rights documentary titled ‘Coming Out Of The Curve’ which airs next week.

    RTÉ released a trailer on YouTube yesterday with the accompanying description saying:

    Dónal Óg Cusack takes stock of gay rights, both at home and abroad, and asks how far we have travelled, from the days when being gay was effectively against the law in Ireland.

    He talks to other sports people about coming out and interviews an ‘ex-gay’ man who claims he has been cured of his homosexuality.

    Coming Out Of The Cruve airs Monday, January 19th at 9.35pm on RTÉ One.

    Fair play to her


    Nine-time All-Ireland winner Valerie Mulcahy will reveal how she dealt with her sexuality in Donal Óg Cusack's documentary to be aired next week.


    The Cork footballer has become the first high-profile female GAA star to come out publicly and does so to help others and to make other women, who are in a similar situation, to feel more comfortable with who they are.

    Donal Óg Cusack, the first openly gay GAA sports star, looks at attitudes towards homosexuality at home and abroad in his documentary Coming Out Of The Curve which will be aired on Monday night on RTE One.

    Mulcahy admits in the documentary: 'When I was younger, I didn't want to be gay."

    A preview of the programme on the RTE Guide yesterday said: "Some of the most affecting images in the documentary are of Valerie and her partner kissing and holding hands.

    "Similarly uplifting is the story of young Cork hurler Chris McCarthy, who got in touch with the production during the making of the documentary."

    Munlcahy, a secondary school teacher in Cork city, is one of the most recognisable faces in ladies football and an inspirational figure among the Cork panel.

    Last October, Irish hockey player Nikki Symmons went public on her sexuality on RTE's Second Captains show.
