Laochra Gael returns with the story of former Kilkenny hurler, Eoin Larkin.
Hurling has been at the core of his life since he was a boy and the game was vital in maintaining Eoin’s bond with his father after his parent’s separation.
After successful years underage, he became a cornerstone of the greatest team of all time, winning 8 All Ireland medals and Hurler of the Year. But in the background, he was struggling.
Towards the end of his career, his mental health declined. He kept his suffering in secret until he received a phone call from Brian Cody that changed his life, details that were revealed in his book “Camouflage”.
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 season returns on TG4 at 9:30 pm on Thursday evenings starting 25th March.
