Limerick hurling legend Ciaran Carey will appear on TG4’s very popular show Laochra Gael on Tuesday night as he looks back on his career in the green jersey.
A new series of the show began last week and the documentary on Carey will air at 8pm on Tuesday, February 10 and feature contributions from former Limerick manager Tom Ryan, Offaly’s Brian Whelehan and Cyril Lyons of Clare.
Carey recalls the 1994 All Ireland hurling final collapse to Offaly saying “it was a horrible feeling, the worst feeling of all my career up to that time because we were so close to picking up that All-Ireland medal.”
Carey also recalls his memorable winning point against Clare in the Gaelic Grounds in 1996, saying that he hoped to earn a free well before he landed that famous score.
“What was on my mind was that I would be flattened for a free. The longer it went on, I knew that, ‘Oh, oh, there could be something here’,” he says.
The programme is one of ten in a new series which will also feature Jamesie O’Connor of Clare, Fan and Philly Larkin from Kilkenny, Brendan Cummins from Tipperary, Michael Duignan from Offaly and Kerry’s Ogie Moran.
