INSIDE POLITICS - RUNNING MATE ON TG4
I haven't seen it yet. But according to those who have, it's brilliant. Ann Marie Hourihan bigged it up in her column in the IT today. It's 'Running Mate', the new drama series about politics on TG4. It's set in the Kerry Gaeltacht, too, which is no bad thing visually.
De réir dealramh, tá an tsraith seo ar fheabhas. Dar le Ann Marie, is mór an náire é nach bhfuil mórán aird á thabhairt don saothar i measc pobal níos leithne.
In fact, there have been a couple of amazing films and series in Irish that have been neglected because they have been shot in the national language. They include Bob Quinn's Poitín, his son Robert's 'Cré na Cille' and series like CU Burn and the excellent soap (or 'sobal' as Gaeilge - soap + pobal!) Ros na Rún.
Pé scéal, if you want to catch up on this excellent series, you can watch all the episodes on the web. All you have to do is follow this link and click on the 'drama cartlann' link. You will see all the past episodes in that online archive.
