Deoch an Dorais ar TG4 28/12/15

Magamedia introduces its new feature documentary Deoch an Dorais / Name Your Poison, which will hit TG4 screens on 28/12/15. The truth is stranger than fiction...


Hard man Anthony Molloy journies to the Bronx in search of the toughest Irish Immigrant the city was ever to see. 'Durable Mike Malloy' survived over 20 attempts on his life in depression era New York, so much so that he became known as:

 

THE RASPUTIN OF THE BRONX.

 

Anthony Molloy captained the Donegal football team to All-Ireland victory in 1992 - it was no championship for shrinking violets, and ever since Anthony prides himself on being the toughest Molloy on the planet, until he heard about Mike Malloy - the Rasputin of the Bronx.


Téann Anthony Molloy go dtín Bronx i Nua Eabhrac sa tóir ar an imirceach Éireannach is domhillte a leag cos sa chathair ariamh. Tháinig 'Durable Mike Malloy' slán as breis is 20 iarracht ar a shaoil le linn an ré toirmeasc sna 30adaí i Nua Eabhrac, oiread agus gur tugadh an 'Rasputin of the Bronx' air ó shin.

 

Is é Anthony a bhí mar chaptaen buacach ar Dhún na nGall nuair a bhain an chontae an corn Sam Mag Uidhir i 1992 don chéad uair ariamh, agus ó shin i leith, is údar mór bród é do Anthony gurb é féin an Molly is tougheáilte ar domhan, go dtí gur chuala sé faoin Mike Malloy seo ar an gclár teilifíse QI, curtha i láthair ag Stephen Fry.
