New drama for TG4
Pól Ó Muirí
TG4 will broadcast a new three-part drama series and modern horror story, Na Cloigne (The Heads), this Wednesday (13th January) at 10.30pm. The story revolves around the discovery of the bodies of two naked and decapitated young women in the Conamara village of Cloigeann. Artist Nuala (Siobhán O’Kelly) and her two-timing boyfriend Seán (Dara Devaney) are drawn into the investigation, lead by Superintendent Ó Sé (Barry McGovern).
Producer, Ciarán Ó Cofaigh, describes Na Cloigne as being “a thrilling story, touching on the darker side of the human condition and a hint of the supernatural. As well as the gripping murder investigation, we also explore the themes of jealousy, family feuding and redemption. We’ve assembled a fantastic cast and crew of well loved Irish talent for this production. Na Cloigne is must see television for 2010”.
Must see? Well, we’ll wait and see. Still, it does sound interesting. Tis a long way from James Carney and Early Irish Poetry, to be sure.
