Tom Parsons and Joe Canning are included in the stars of TG4’s next series of Laochra Gael, which returns for a 21st series.

A documentary on Joe Canning will be the first in the series, looking at his rise to becoming the most famous hurler in the country and the harsh lessons that he learned about the scrutiny that comes with that fame.

Family and a search for All Ireland glory with his native Galway are among the main topics.

In the fourth installment in the series, the inter-county career of Tom Parsons is the talking point.

Teenage stardom as a senior county player, being dropped from the panel and coming back to be at the heart of the renowned rivalry with Dublin are all discussed here.

His horrific injury in 2018 and miraculous return are also well presented.

Programme 1 with Joe Canning airs at 9:30 PM on Thursday January 26, and Programme 4 with Tom Parsons will be on at the same time but on Thursday February 16.
