Reigning RTE Celebrity Bainisteoir 2008 champions Marty Whelan and Maryland will take on Bainisteoir Patrick Kielty and London Senior Football Champions 2008 Tir Chonaill Gaels in a one-off challenge match for this one-hour special. Earlier this year, RTE's Celebrity Bainisteoir became a massive hit as the nation tuned in to watch what happened when eight non-sporting celebrities took on the challenge of managing an intermediate club football team from their home county in an official GAA competition (and, as it turns out, Mary O'Rourke is a quitter). As with the main tournament both Bainisteoiri will have an experienced mentor on hand to help them train and manage the team, but Bainisteoiri will be responsible for team training and tactics and for picking the teams. Dessie Dolan returns to do the honours for Marty Whelan and Paul Hehir will help out Patrick Kielty.
