TG4 Marks the Return of Gifted Empire Productions’ FleadhTV with Debut Live Show
09 Jul 2018 : Nathan Griffin
Following on from its previous success, FleadhTV returned to Irish homes over the weekend with the first ever live programme from a provincial Fleadh being broadcast on TG4, at 8pm, Sunday July 8th.

Produced by Gifted Empire Productions, FleadhTV first appeared on television screens in 2013 with Fleadh Cheoil, which was then titled ‘Fleadh Live’ and took place in Derry.  A programme that was centred on the hugely popular music event, Fleadh Cheoil has now become one of TG4’s flagship programmes of the year. 

This year the fleadh team will broadcast LIVE from the Provincial Fleadhs.  The four provinces are covered – Connacht in Ballinamore, Co. Leitrim on July 8th, Leinster in Bagnelstown on July 15th. Then the crew will take a trip to Ennis, Co. Clare for the Munster Fleadh on Sunday, July 22nd, followed by up to Castlewellan, Co. Down for the Ulster Fleadh on July 29th for the final provincial FleadhEach show airs from 8pm to 9.30pm.

The FleadhTV shows in August are the main stay of the series. They will be broadcast live on TG4 from Thursday 16th August to Sunday 19th August from 8.30pm to 11.30pm each night.

Presenter Hector Ó hEochagáin will return this year to bring viewers the best of 'ceol agus craic' from the streets of Drogheda!  Joining him in her debut on FleadhTV is renowned musician and Gaeilgeoir Doireann Ni Ghlacáin.  New to the presenting team also is well known RTÉ Radio 1 presenter and lead vocalist from The Evertides Ruth Smith. For the Provincial Fleadh’s Doireann will take the helm in presenting the shows ably assisted by another newcomer to the team, Aindrias de Staic.

Last year’s show was watched by over 700,000 with people tuning into the live show every weekend. FleadhTV coverage will be available to watch steam worldwide at www.tg4.ie

The series is produced by the IFTA Award winning team at Gifted Empire Productions.
