In these sports-starved pandemic days, the only sporting action that’s on television is of the golden oldie kind. In that vein, TG4’s long-running Laochra Gael programme – this is its 18th series – has featured loads of prominent stars of yesteryear. This week the show features the county’s own David Brady.

The larger-than-life Ballina Stephenites player appeared in four All-Ireland finals at inter-county level. Those deciders all ended in defeat, of course, but in 2005 he tasted national success when he was part of the Stephenites team that claimed the All-Ireland club football title.

David’s story is told through the eyes of his brother Ger, as well as former Mayo captain Alan Dillon, former Galway footballer Seán Óg de Paor, broadcaster Seán Bán Breathnach and Irish Independent journalist Vincent Hogan.

This episode of Laochra Gael airs on TG4 this coming Thursday (2nd April) at 9.30pm and it’ll be repeated on Sunday (5th April) at 4.55pm.

Here’s a short preview of what you can expect from the David Brady episode of Laochra Gael.

  1. Watched the 2nd half of 16 final on eir sports for my sins.
    Hennelly did not even foul Andrews who dived. Everybody got distracted by the mistake but he did not foul afterwards.
    And then philly ploughs into AOS late on but no peno. Backs and midfield great but no firepower on the day

  2. Facetheball we were blessed with all star goalkeeper. Defenders and midfielders. But ya need those all star forwards to get u over the line. We have not had many all star forwards the last decade. Please god we will have more potent forward line in future.

  3. Really looking forward to this one. My only regret looking back is that I didn’t appreciate Brady for the tough nut he was at the time, I was a bit too much of a purist back in the late 90s/early noughties!!

    For anyone interested who might have missed it. Off the Ball interviewed David Brady about this a few weeks back, here is the link to the podcast:

    Would love to hear more from that team of the 90s looking back, to get their thoughts, hear about where they’re at now – the David Heaneys, Kenneth Morts, David Nestors, Kevin Cahills, John Maddens. And from that great ladies team of the early noughties too.

    Would make for a few nice podcasts, if there was anyone around here into that sort of thing 😉
