‘The Toughest Road Back’
2015 Dir: Ross Whitaker True Films/Rothco/AIB GAA
This was a really fun short documentary to edit. The film was made by Ross Whitaker and Aideen O’Sullivan of True Films, we last worked together on ‘When Ali Came to Ireland’ and it was great to get the band back together so to speak. The film was cut in my offices on Baggot Street where conveniently Aideen works next door as part of the Second Captains team so cutting this was a very enjoyable experience and I think the film turned out great…
14 months after rupturing his ACL and fracturing his knee playing for Dr Crokes, Colm Cooper made a return to competitive football in April 2015. It has been a long, hard road back to fitness for the 31-year-old, who had to watch last year’s All-Ireland senior football triumph from the sidelines. The Toughest Road Back charts his year long recovery and outlines just what football means to one of the greatest players to have play the game.
