Pearse Doherty Thanks Kevin Cassidy For 'Amazing Gesture' To His Grieving Family

Pearse Doherty Thanks Kevin Cassidy For 'Amazing Gesture' To His Grieving Family

The twentieth season of Laochra Gael premiered last night with an episode on the ever-fascinating Kevin Cassidy.

Cassidy has lived an interesting life. He was raised in Glasgow. His father battled alcoholism. He won two All-Stars with Donegal, was famously dropped ahead of the 2012 Championship and inspired his club Gaoth Dobhair to the 2018 Ulster club title.

In the programme, Cassidy reveals he placed his 2011 Ulster champions medal - the only provincial medal he won with Donegal - in the grave of beloved Gweedore man Micheál Doherty after his death in 2012. Micheál was the father of Sínn Fein TD Pearse Doherty.

'When I'm playing, and the other lads as well, we're not playing for ourselves, we're playing for others,' Cassidy says.

As Laochra Gael was aired last night, Doherty tweeted to say how much the gesture meant to his family.

Cassidy's response was also class.

The programme was brilliantly-received and we'd urge you to watch it back on the TG4 player if you missed it. We'll give the final word on the show to Cassidy's clubmate Eamon McGee.
