About the Show
Jim and Gary have a double life. They are actors by night..but by day they are..
..The Water Boys for Carrickshock hurling team!
As kids, they dreamed of raising an All-Ireland hurling trophy in Croke Park. Their bodies may have prevented them from playing for their club, but nothing will stop these striped crusaders from being part of their team. The Water Boys is an extraordinary, real-life story about learning to walk, learning to fall and learning to follow your dreams.
