Laochra Gael
Laochra Gael returns with six more legends who performed heroics on the field and who each have a unique and extraordinary story to tell.

The Laochra Gael season returns on TG4 at 9:30pm on Thursday evenings starting 25th March.

The definitive GAA sports series returned to TG4 this spring for a 19th series. The hour-long format has proved a huge success, bringing each player’s personal stories to screen. The series which already featured six extraordinary Laochra  with genuine star quality took a break from our screens in early February but is now returning with the remaining six exceptional Laochra. 

The series reveals deeper, fresh and sometimes unexpected insights into the lives of these icons.  While their sporting careers continue to provide the backdrop to the story, the series travels well beyond the four white lines. Gripping personal storylines will compel viewers to travel towards territory unique to the GAA television landscape.

"TG4 are very proud to be broadcasting another great series of Laochra Gael which marks the great achievements and stories that our Gaelic Games legends have to tell,” said TG4's Head of Sport, Rónán Ó Coisdealbha.

“This is the beginning of the nineteenth series of Laochra Gael, which aired on TG4 for the first time in 2001 and it has continued as a long standing and popular part of our schedule bringing these amazing stories to viewers in Ireland and all over the world,” Ó Coisdealbha continued.

This new season’s batch of GAA Legends already included Kevin Cassidy who lost out on an All-Ireland medal because of his contribution to a book; Ryan O’Dwyer, who was on the cusp of leading the Dublin hurlers to glory, before he cost them an All-Ireland title; Thérèse Maher, who finally fulfilled her destiny having lost five All-Ireland Camogie Finals; Roscommon’s Shane Curran, one of football’s great characters and the prototype of the modern playmaking goalkeeper; Johnny Pilkington, the heartbeat of the mighty Offaly hurlers of the 1990s, and one of the game’s greatest characters; and Dermot Earley, who showed extraordinary courage in the face of crippling injuries, cancer, and the death of his father. 

Twelve outstanding Gaels; twelve remarkable personal stories, which can currently be viewed on the TG4 Player.

The series is produced by NemetonTV, the independent production company from An Rinn in the Waterford Gaeltacht, which has produced much of TG4’s acclaimed sports coverage.

The Laochra Gael season returns on TG4 at 9:30pm on Thursday evenings starting March 25th.
