Gizzy Lyng Laochra Gael

(Oldest Posts First)

Did people watch it?

I thought it was really interesting, he's an interesting character and a serious hurler in his day.

I found the insight in to the pressure that inter county players can put themselves under was interesting, it just got to him along with physical ailments to accompany it. A man obsessed with hurling needed a complete break from it to appreciate it again in reality.

Not sure I could adapt to his current way of life in Kerry but each to their own. Some lovely words from George O Connor and Tommy Walsh also.

Thought it was the best Laoctra Gael ever for its honesty and range of topics, from hurling to mental health and indeed sustainable living, and winning isn't everything
George O Connor and Tommy Walsh are true legends. Good topic btw

Great episode, throughly interesting. Nice to see a person go after what they want rather than follow the norm. More luck to him

Yeah I thought the same, people seem to think in GAA circles you have to conform to the love of the parish and do it for the jersey and nothing else matters. People like Gizzy are a breath of fresh air.

Also available and downloadable from the excellent TG4 Player App. And there's a few YouTube TG4 channels like TG4 sport with bits on it to keep our spirits up in these worrying days. Stay well and happy lads.
