In the series, dubbed “Special Forces: Ultimate Hell Week,” 24 civilians face an eight-day army style selection course designed by former members of the country’s special forces unit, the Army Ranger Wing, according to the report.
Clonmel-based Boston Scientific production supervisor Darran Gayson appeared on the premiere episode of the series which offered viewers insight into the Army Ranger Wing’s secretive selection process, according to the County Tipperary report.
Grayson, a father of two, said he applied to push himself to the limit and to test his ability to mentally cope with difficult situations, according to the report. Darren won a gold medal with the Irish May Thai team at the Four Nations competition in 2012.
Last month, a report emerged suggesting that Boston Scientific is offering to cover relocation costs for expatriated Irish residents that left for job opportunities in Australia as it looks to fill out open positions in Galway.
