It’s Raining Men


New TG4 weather men Darren Ó Dubhgain (right) and Donncha Ó Murchú


I feel a warm front.

This afternoon.

Two new presenters have joined TG4’s weather and continuity team creating an even more diverse panel. They are, Darren Ó Dubhgain from Donegal and Dubliner Donncha Ó Murchú. Aimsir TG4 provides the Irish weather service through Irish. Three linear bulletins are broadcast each day and there are more on the station’s website as well as its own social media on Twitter @AimsirTG4.

Swooniní agus scórchio.

    LOL –
    Yeh appointing two white Irish blokes really screams diversity.
    Well done TG4 on that bold statement

      Maybe they were hired for their experience, knowledge and personality, not their sex or skin colour? Identity politics are not just idiotic, they are backwards for humanity.

      Again, Ireland has approx 93% white people. Your logic is wrong.

      I believe that TG4 and RnaG are some of the better media outlets in Ireland, in terms of gender equality, and has been for a good number of years.

      Of course, I could be wrong and am open to correction

        Also, we have had many women presenting the weather forecast over the last 20 or 30 years. Maybe more than the men? Shopping for humans based on their gender, skin colour, or identity instead of their merits for the job is what happens under apartheid, its part of what destroyed the Lebanese economy. Many countries in Africa and the Middle East are trying to rid themselves of this disease of the mind, and the woke are sleep walking into it. Identity politics eventually become full on racism and segregation.

        Why are there so many white women on Irish TV? Why are trans women not there instead? You bigots!!

        TG4 is really diverse in the way it shows foreign language films, with English subtitles. It has shown some gas foreign travel docs hosted by Hector agus a cairde.

      Oh shur’up

      These are the successful applicants for the vacancies
      And good luck to them

      If there was more focus on the best for job
      We’d have no quota coat-tailing jackpot winners
      And no need for affirmative action practices

      That’s how you promise Equality
      And embed Equality into every workplace

      Insist on independent Candidates
      You can avoid any Conflict of Interest by inserting ‘connected parties not eligible to apply’
      into the essential candidate requirements

      And Pick the best candidate(s)

    They seem to have bespoke tailors, but they are not wearing all-weather gear. Have they postman’s cloaks at home?

      With the original jackets judging by the size of them.

      No way could they deliver the weather in those, far too restrictive around the arms and shoulders.

      Nothing to do with weather forecasts, but I scrolled down and spotted this bilingual pun:-
      Really struggling with the fact there’s no tattoo shops in Ireland called “Conas atattoo”

    If any one of you here were parents, siblings or partners of these lovely lads, would ye feel comfortable about the comments above?

    Nice to see TG4 introduce young talent. Anyone wanting to brush up their native language, or support it at least, should tune in and see an spéir gorm.
