'Ar Mo Bhealach Féin' An Irish Language Broadcast Fund Series On BBC Two NI

Seán Mac Labhraí as he retraces the steps of his Donegal literary hero in the series
The Irish Language Broadcast Fund series 'Ar Mo Bhealach Féin', is being shown on BBC Two Northern Ireland on Monday 9th January at 10pm.

The repeat of the three-part series follows Seán Mac Labhraí as he retraces the steps of his literary hero, Seosamh Mac Grianna, through Wales using Mac Grianna’s book 'Mo Bhealach Féin' as his guide.

Seosamh Mac Grianna the novelist from Ranafast in County Donegal, is renowned and celebrated for creating a new literature for the Irish language in the 20th century.

On the 9 April 1934 Seosamh Mac Grianna set off on a 300 mile trek through Wales in the hope of rediscovering his creative muse in a sister Celtic Nation. This fascinating character made promises  not to sleep under a roof, nor ride in a car or train and not to back away from a fight. But could he keep those vows? And would his journey, if completed, have any impact on his writing?

Eighty years after Mac Grianna’s adventure, Seán Mac Labhraí takes the same path, through the valleys, villages and stunning Welsh landscape to discover personal insights into the complex character of Seosamh Mac Grianna. He asks why one of Ireland’s greatest Gaelic novelists undertook this arduous physical journey and what - if anything - he got from it.

'Ar Mo Bhealach Féin' was produced by Armagh based production company Macha Media for BBC Northern Ireland with funding from Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund.

It will be shown on BBC Two NI on Monday 9th January at 10pm.
