Fascinating journey: Kevin Cassidy on duty for his beloved Gaoth Dobhair

Here's something to make you feel your age as we creep gingerly into what might be the most depressing month any of us will know: 'Laochra Gael' (Heroes of the Gaels), TG4's documentary series on prominent Gaelic games personalities, is 20-years-old.

I know. Hard to believe, right? There you were, counting your calories and tracking your steps in January, trying to reverse the ageing process and there I am, kablamming you with a fact like that.

Laochra Gael has been one of those things that we have grown old with. The very first series wasn't short on material with the likes of Ger Loughnane and Páidí ÓSé profiled. At the time the concept fell flat, smothered in camera fear, an excess of false modesty and pringle.
