Much love for Laois woman Sue Ramsbottom from TV viewers following Laochra Gael appearance

Sue Ramsbottom Laochra Gael

Laois’s first ever appearance on the popular TG4 sports documentary show Laochra Gael happened last night.

The definitive GAA sports series Laochra Gael returned to TG4 for another series which started on January 13.

And former Laois and Timahoe Ladies footballer Sue Ramsbottom featured on the third episode last night.

The series hour-long format has proved a huge success, bringing each player’s personal stories to screen.

A child prodigy, Sue Ramsbottom played senior football at just 12 years of age.

Sue suffered heartbreak on the field time and time again, but in 2001 she finally fulfilled her dream of winning an All-Ireland medal.

Six years after winning the All-Ireland with her, Sue’s life-long friend, Lulu Carroll passed away after a battle with cancer.

After over twenty years at the top of her sport and a military career across the world, Sue, with her two daughters, is now back in her beloved home county, Laois.

James Ramsbottom, Connie Conway, Daragh Ó Conchúir, Caoimhe Burke, Emma Burke, Máire Ní Bhraonáin, Michael Ryan and Ceannfort Caroline Burke all contributed to the episode alongside Sue.

And it went down very well with viewers who took to social media to reacting positively.
