BBC Gaeilge launches #FADUDA. A new Irish language digital content strand to give 18-30 year old Irish speakers an opportunity to build an online community through vlogging.
#FADUDA will be available through BBC Northern Ireland’s YouTube channel and is produced by Paper Owl Films for BBC Northern Ireland.
It’s launch coincides with one of the biggest events in the BBC Gaeilge calendar, Seachtain na Gaeilge. These engaging young vloggers cover topics from the fun to the serious with everything from lifestyle, travel and sport to beauty tips, fashion and cooking.
Producer/Director, Sian Nic an Bheatha said: “It’s such a great opportunity to work on a project such as #FADUDA. It’s a fun project to produce and there’s a lot of craic. This is the type of content that young Irish speakers like me want to see online and it’s great to be able to work together with other speakers.”
The current line-up includes Cormac MacDiarmadá who gives a few Mixed Martial Arts tips, while Aoife Nic an tSaoir tells us all about interior design and Eimhear Nig Uiginn shares her best make-up tips.
Also featured in the series of online videos are Irish speakers abroad who share their new experiences. Find out how Ian MacGabhann is coping with the snow in Canada and watch Amy Ní Cholgáin’s best vegan recipes from her home in Spain.
#FADUDA’s digital content will feature a diverse range of voices, content and humour and never ending surprises. New videos will be posted daily and can be accessed through the BBC Gaeilge website.
