Starting next Monday

Ár Scéal

A 26-part pre-school, art/storytelling series produced by Galway-based Meangadh Fíbín for Cúla 4 (Young Peoples’ Programming) on TG4.

Kathleen Nic Dhonnacha writes:

This ambitious series follows presenter, Úna Ní Fhlatharta, in her funky art-filled van, as she visits 52 primary schools nationwide to collect delightful stories, lovingly illustrated by the children themselves.

All stories are newly written by the award winning children’s author Patricia Forde.

Each episode sees Úna and the children draw inspiration from their unique story to create imaginative and innovative artwork that will allow the story to come alive.

Both Úna and the children enjoy creating and making before they eventually listen to the story being told in full by one of the schoolchildren.

In fairness.

Ar Sceakl on Monday at 9.15am on TG4.

    How lovely!! What a wonderful idea.

    We have such a long history of storytelling, of spoken word and it’s really nice to see this as an interpretation of it

    I know you normally don’t do this but the correct spelling of “Marie Trees” name is Máire Treasa Ní Dhubhghaill.
    Was it for this, etc.
