A new documentary about late Kerry footballing legend Páidí Ó Sé featuring interviews with his wife, children and friends screens on TG4 on Christmas Day. Watch a clip here.

Páidí Ó Sé – Rí an Pharóiste tells the story of the great showman and the man considered by many to be the uncrowned king of his native parish of Ventry.

The new documentary, which airs at 10,15pm on TG4 on Christmas Day, is a personal account and portrait of Páidí’s life story, as told from the perspective of his own rural Gaeltacht community.

It is authored by one of his neighbours, Louise Ní Fhiannachta and contributors include Páidí’s wife Máire Uí Shé and their children Neasa, Siún & Pádraig Óg; childhood and lifelong friends Muiris Ó Fiannachta, Joe Bán Ó Sé & Seán Ó Catháin; brother Tom Ó Sé; nephew Feargal Ó Sé and close friends Mícheál Ó Sé & Peter Ó Fiannachta.
