The Irish language magazine series, I Lár an Aonaigh, is back with a new series starting on BBC Two Northern Ireland on Monday 9th November at 10pm. The series is made for BBC Gaeilge by Below The Radar TV with support from Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund.

Over six weeks, presenters Máire Bhreathnach and Dáithí Ó Muirí are joined by Lynette Fay, Conall Ó Máirtín and Seán Ó Baoill for a mix of stories, chat and some great musical performances.

The six-part series will include a variety of special guests including actor and TV presenter Gráinne Bleasdale, writer Myra Zepf, poet Seán Ó Muireagáin, actor Eoghan Ó Dubhghaill, former Wexford hurling captain Diarmuid Lyng, presenter Irial Ó Ceallaigh and climate ambassador Ailbhe Ní Riain.

Once again there will be a great mix of music, from traditional and pop, to indie and rap. There will be performances from the eclectic trio Wyvern Lingo, Donegal singer-songwriter Megan Nic Ruairí, Kildare rappers Tebi Rex, Belfast’s own Alice LA, trad-folk duo, Jack Warnock and Moya Sweeney and traditional singer Ciara McCrickard from County Down.

Series Producer Máire Bhreathnach said: “In these challenging times we are particularly delighted to be back with another series of I Lár an Aonaigh. We have some great musicians and guests again this year and a wide range of features which include looking at the impact of Covid-19 on our autistic children and exploring the 20×20 campaign, aimed at creating a cultural shift in our perception of women in sport, and lots more.”

Additional cover tracks recorded by each of the artists will be available to watch online at bbc.co.uk/gaeilge or via the BBC Gaeilge Facebook page.
