Laochra Gael

  • TG4’s sport documentary series Laochra Gael turns its attention to Mayo midfielder David Brady tonight.

    David Brady lost four All-Ireland Finals with Mayo, and also won an All-Ireland Club title with his club Ballina Stephenites.

    David’s story is told through the eyes of his proud brother Ger Brady, former Mayo Footballer and politician Alan Dillon, former Galway Footballer Seán Óg de Paor, broadcaster Seán Bán Breathnach and Irish Independent Journalist Vincent Hogan.

    The episode will air at 9.30pm on tonight, with a repeat showing on Sunday at 4.55pm.

  • Galway Camogie Star Thérèse Maher will feature on tonight's Laochra Gael programme on TG4.

    The eighth of eleven children from a famous hurling family, Thérèse stood out from a very young age.

    She made her Galway debut at just 16, and it seemed that she was destined for success.

    But the win on the big day eluded her and Thérèse lost five All Ireland Finals.

    On top of this, she lost both her mother and her father during this time. And so, there was widespread jubilation when, on All Ireland Final Day in 2013, in her last ever game, Thérèse Maher fulfilled her destiny.

    The programme is aired on TG4 tonight from 9.30pm.
