New Covid-set webseries Le Ceangal to release on TG4's young people's platform
16 Jun 2020 : News Desk
Eva-Jane Gaffney (Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope) and Eoin Ó Dubhghaill (Arracht) in Le Ceangal.
Le Ceangal is an 8 x 5-minute new Covid-set web drama or Zoomcom on TG4’s young people’s platform.

The first two episodes will be available from 1pm on Friday, June 26th and weekly thereafter.

Having met on Tinder, Galway-based Declan (24) and Dubliner Aoife (25) have gone on five tentative dates.  Just as they are about to broach the tricky “should we both come off Tinder now?” question, they are locked up in lockdown. In two different cities; with two different Wi-Fi speeds; and their blossoming relationship is now on life-support.

With Aoife’s Da suffering from MS, she has promised not to mix outside her family so a physical encounter is off the agenda. They try everything to keep their relationship from floundering, but WhatsApp memes, Zoom quizzes, even phone sex can’t substitute for real human contact, or can they?

This brand-new comedy series is devised and directed by Oisín Mistéil and stars Eva-Jane Gaffney (Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope) and Eoin Ó Dubhghaill (Arracht).

You’ve heard of Sleepless in Seattle, well here you have Gormless in Galway, and Hapless in Howth…

From the producers of the IFTA winning Corp + Anam and EIPIC, Le Ceangal was shot this June in Galway under social distancing restrictions. Producer Paddy Hayes said of the series: “Throughout the Covid health emergency, I always wondered would it be easy for a young couple to maintain a relationship while being forcibly separated from their partners. And now I know it has its… challenges ”.
