The Irish language magazine series, I Lár an Aonaigh, returns to BBC Two Northern Ireland



Date Posted: November 9, 2018

The Irish language magazine series, I Lár an Aonaigh, returns to BBC Two Northern Ireland on Monday 12th November at 10pm.

I Lár an Aonaigh is a Below The Radar TV production for BBC Gaeilge with funding from Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund.

Presenters Máire Bhreathnach and Dáithí Ó Muirí are joined by Lynette Fay, Conall Ó Máirtín and Seán Ó Baoill with a mix of stories, chat and some great musical performances.

This six part series will include a variety of special guests including Jim Lockhart from Horslips, writer Dave Duggan, musician Gerry O’Connor, poet Ciara Ní É, sports journalist, Máire Treasa Ní Cheallaigh and writer and publisher Tadhg Mac Dhonnagáin.

Once again there will be a great mix of music, from traditional to pop, to indie and soul. We’ll hear from contemporary folk duo, Lemoncello, Donegal singer-songwriter, Little Hours, Trad group Skipper’s Alley, Derry’s own Roe and some soul from Síomha and the electro-pop band Vokxen from Co Antrim.

Extra tracks recorded by each of the artists will be available to watch online at here or via the BBC Gaeilge Facebook page.

Series Producer Máire Bhreathnach said: “It’s great to be back with another series of I Lár an Aonaigh. We have some really great home-grown musicians featuring again this series and a wide range of interesting stories, everything from the story of the Suffragettes, to the levels of plastic pollution in our oceans, to the background of the Apollo 8 mission.”
