TG4 to broadcast The Irish Post Awards 2017
12 Oct 2017 :
The Irish Post has signed an exclusive deal with Irish language broadcaster TG4 to televise this year’s Irish Post Awards live on television. TG4 will broadcast the red carpet awards ceremony live from London on November 23.

The Awards ceremony will be hosted by veteran broadcaster and TV personality Eamonn Holmes, who will honour Irish success and achievement in business, community, sport, film, music, entertainment and politics.

Irish Post Owner and Publisher Elgin Loane said:

“We are very pleased to partner with TG4 to showcase the Irish abroad and connect a big diaspora event with mainstream live television in Ireland.”

TG4 Director General, Alan Esslemont, said:

“The Irish diaspora, in Britain and worldwide, is an important and growing audience for TG4. We are very excited to extend our partnership to take on the role as broadcaster for The Irish Post Awards for the first time. It is a wonderful and unique opportunity to celebrate Irish life and achievement abroad.”

Featuring six Awards and four live music performances, the Awards show is being produced by The Irish Post through knowledge gained from its Irish TV acquisition.

More than 1,000 people will gather on London’s Park Lane for what is the 40th anniversary of The Irish Post Awards.

Previous award-winners have included Terry Wogan, Bob Geldof, Daniel Day Lewis, Michael Flatley and Doctor Mo Mowlam.
