Date Posted: June 4, 2018

An Focal Scoir, a studio discussion series for BBC Two Northern Ireland, is back on our screens tonight (Monday, 4th June) at 10pm. The four-part series was produced by Below The Radar TV for BBC Gaeilge with funding from Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund.

Once again, An Focal Scoir will feature discussion and analysis on a number of wide-ranging stories and topics that matter to the Northern Ireland audience.

Máire Bhreathnach is joined each week by a panel of journalists and social commentators including Áine Ní Bhreisleáin, Cathal Mac Coille, Gearóid Ó Muilleoir and Róisín Ó Hara. Discussion points will include everything from body image and medicinal cannabis to the upcoming papal visit. Location reports will include views from the public on the various topics.

Antaine Ó Donnaile, Series Producer, said, “We are delighted that this ground-breaking series, An Focal Scoir, is back for a second series on BBC NI. We analyse and discuss topical issues which have resonance and relevance for the audience, whether they speak Irish, English or any other language.”
