An Chathair Ghonta (The Wounded City) on TG4

An Chathair Ghonta (The Wounded City) is a brand new Irish Language Broadcast Fund documentary charting the history of Belfast over the last 100 years. Produced by Bóthar Ard, it will air this Saturday, 5th January at 8.35pm on TG4.

Through the eyes of its citizens, the documentary explores the city’s often dark past as it gives way to a brighter and peaceful future. On the centenary of the Titanic’s launch, Cathair Ghonta asks those who have built the peace — and have suffered loss during the city’s 30-year conflict — how best to heal Belfast’s wounded people.

Directed by Tomás Seoige and presented by Belfast native Ainle Ó Cairealláin, the one-hour documentary features poignant and uplifting contributions from poet Gearóid Mac Lochlainn, singer Gráinne Holland, and peace-builders Sammy Douglas and Fr Gerry Reynolds as well as from Siobhán Cliontún, whose mother Theresa was shot dead in a 1994 loyalist gun attack on her Ormeau home, and Alan McBride, whose wife lost her life in the IRA’s Shankill fish shop bomb in 1993.


An Chathair Ghonta ar TG4

Is clár faisnéise úr-nua, de chuid an Chiste Craoltóireachta Gaeilge é An Chathair Gonta a chaitheann súil siar ar stair Bhéal Feirste le céad bliain anuas. Léirithe ag Bóthar Ard, craolfar ar TG4 é ar an Satharn seo, 5ú Éanair ag 8.35 i.n.

Trí shúile shaoránaigh na cathrach agus iad ag comóradh céad bliain de sheoladh an Titanic, amharcann an scannán faisnéise seo ar chuid de scéalta dorcha na háite chomh maith leis an todhchaí gheal atá i ndán di. Pléann An Chathair Ghonta ceist na síochána le cúpla tógálaí síochána agus le cuid de na daoine a d’fhulaing go mór le linn tríocha bliain de choimhlintí sa chathair, ag déanamh scagtha ar an dóigh is fearr leis na créachtaí a chneasú.

Stiúrtha ag Tomás Seoige agus curtha i látháir ag an Feirsteach Ainle Ó Cairealláin, cloistear ó Ghearóid Mac Lochlainn, file, ó Ghráinne Holland, amhránaí agus ó thógálaithe na síochána, Sammy Douglas agus an tAthair Gerry Reynolds. Cloistear fosta ó Shiobhán Cliontún, ar maraíodh a máthair, Theresa, i 1994 nuair a scaoileadh í le linn ionsaithe a rinne dílseoirí ar a teach i gceantar Ormeau i mBéal Feirste. Cloistear fosta ó Alan McBride a chaill a bhean chéile nuair a phléasc an tIRA buama ag siopa éisc ar Bhóthar na Seanchille sa bhliain 1993.
