Staying in tomorrow?

Journalist and filmmaker Paddy Hayes writes:

I have an important documentary going out tomorrow night on TG4 called Finné: Sophia Murphy

Sophia, who was a guest on RTÉ One’s The Late Late Show’ last Friday, tells a raw unflinching story of childhood abuse by her father, and is keen to get her message of survival to others who may be suffering out there.

In spite of everything hers is an inspirational tale. She is the most inspirational and unembittered person this old hack has ever met, and I think and hope that the documentary does her justice.

Finné: Sophia Murphy at at 21.30 on TG4.

On TG4’s 7LÁ at 7.35pm.

Broadcaster Máirín Ní Ghadhra will present an item on Ireland’s Defence Forces which will include an interview with Frank Reidy, a former Defence Forces officer.

TG4 writez:

According to former officers from the Irish Defence Forces, soldiers are at a very low ebb and they say that they cannot survive on the wages they are being paid.

The force is also reputedly 650 short of its full complement and the Department of Defence is failing in it’s efforts to recruit new members because of the unsatisfactory working conditions.

The Public Service Pay Commission is due to publish a report soon which will make recommendations to Minister Paschal Donohoe to resolve the issues.

Aonghus (Johnny Chóil Mhaidhc) Ó Coistealbha


Produced and directed by Paula Kehoe.

Síolscéalta is a four part series following the growing year at An Garraí Glas with Aonghus (Chóil Mhaidhc) Ó Coistealbha, a charismatic young man on a mission to grow food sustainably at his homeplace. A small holder with a big vision swimming against the tide.

Aonghus was born and grew up in Na Creagáin, Connemara. His life’s work is to grow food organically and on a small scale, without chemicals or machinery, for the people of Connemara.

Having spent years abroad working on organic farms in different countries, and studying their methods and permaculture, Aonghus decided it was time to return to his birthplace and create a smallholding there, using all he’d learned alongside the older, traditional methods he grew up with.

In fairness.

Síolscéalta on TG4 tonight at 8pm and repeated Sunday at 6.40pm.

We published a skate video yesterday on [TG4’s] BLOC, following on from our coverage of the skate against suicide last week. The video is a real love letter to Dublin, and counter culture, and is beautifully shot and edited…

Tá stoked orm.
