Next Wednesday, 20th September,
Vision Sports Ireland will feature on RTE’s big autumn hit Celebrity Operation
Leader Kayleigh Cullinane – a grand-niece
of our legendary swim coach Frank Cullinane – will find out about tandem
cycling, judo, blind football, tennis and, of course, swimming.
Here at Vision Sports we haven’t a clue what will make the final edit. What we
do know is that magically 9 hours of footage will disappear into 4-5 minutes of
broadcast next Wednesday. This inevitably means that many interviews and
footage won’t make the cut and this will have absolutely nothing to do with
quality of content. Please don’t be disappointed. The programme will contain
our links in its rollup credits. We will work with the production team to post
on social media later.
In a recent email to Vision Sports members our Chairperson Joe Geraghty sought
a favour: “This will be the biggest ever TV and media exposure of our organisation,”
says Joe “I really need you to tell your neighbours, friends, foes and the dogs
on the street that we’re on the telly. Please also think of a few who are in
business who might support us.
“When the dust settles later in the month I’ll ask you to please
send me on some contact details. Along with the Vision Sports Board I will send
a signed snail mail to each contact with details of our case for support.
