Cross Rangers - Field of Dreams will air on BBC this coming Monday
Crossmaglen Rangers as you've never seen them before.
Under the managemen of Joe Kiernan, Crossmaglen Rangers ended a 10-year famine to claim the Armagh county title in 1996. That achievement marked the beginning of an extensive run of success for the club which consisted of 13 successive county championships, seven Ulster titles and four coveted All-Irelands.
Oisin McConville and John McEntee - who also went on to win an All-Ireland with Armagh - played an instrumental part of those famous feats and they have since taken up managerial positions in the club.
They have been entrusted with the responsibility of maintaining title-winning standards in Crossmaglen with a new generation of talent. And the documentary Cross Rangers - Field of Dreams, tells the remarkable story of how this club overcame the troubles in Northern Ireland to become one of the most successful teams in GAA.
Cross Rangers - Field of Dreams will be televised this Monday on BBC.
