ILBF series ‘Beidh Aonach Amárach’ offers insight into Ireland’s agricultural shows



Date Posted: January 8, 2019

Witness the excitement, tension and fun exhibited at Ireland’s country fairs in Beidh Aonach Amárach on Thursday 10th January 2019 at 9.30pm on TG4.

With 140 agricultural shows across Ireland, thousands of competitors spend months of preparation before travelling the country to take part in the competitions each weekend. Beidh Aonach Amárach provides an insight into the lives of those who take part in these shows every year.

Beidh Aonach Amárach was produced by Crawford McCann Ltd for TG4 and BBC Northern Ireland with funding support from Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund.

The six-part series showcases competitors who give their everything to be Best in Show; from cakes to cattle; flower-arranging to sheep-shearing; show-jumping to shiny cars; as well as the best in vegetables, dogs, birds, clothes, arts and crafts. Beidh Aonach Amárach also features the army of volunteers who organise and judge these events every year.

The series takes viewers into the heart of the country show scene in Ireland, featuring the very big – Balmoral and Tullamore; the very picturesque – West Kerry and Glencolmcille and the traditional – Finn Valley and Clogher Valley.

BEIDH AONACH AMÁRACH was produced and directed by Bernadette Morris and was Executive Produced by Mairéad Ní Nuadháin and Kelda Crawford-McCann for Crawford McCann Film & TV.
