Laochra Gael will once again return to our TV screens early next year, with 12 high profile GAA stars set to be profiled.

The popular series will be shown on TG4, with profiles of GAA legends including Sean Cavanagh, Eoin Larkin and Pete McGrath. The show will start in January and and the 12 episodes will run on Thursdays at 9:30pm.

As always, the show documents the careers of GAA legends who've done it all like Cavanagh and Larkin, and those whose careers were no less interesting for never having reached the promised land like Ryan O'Dwyer or Dermot Earley.

The season's cast looks set to be one of the best yet, coming in two parts with a first run starting with Donegal's two-time All-Star Kevin Cassidy on January 7th.
