    Fionntán and the Fadgies

    Pól Ó Muirí

    TG4 will broadcast a documentary on Belfast’s forgotten Irish speakers at 9.30pm tonight – Scéal na Fadgies. The Fadgies were native speakers from Omeath, Co Louth, who lived and worked in the city in the 1850s and 1860s and the programme’s presenter, Doctor Fionntán de Brún of the University of Ulster, will look at their influence on the city’s culture. Have not seen the prog but have heard de Brún lecture on this fascinating subject before. A progamme not to miss, imho.

      Whups forgot about Pól. Clearly you and Hugh have forgotten about this blog. Would ye ever move over and let a few others in if yizzer arent going to update? I can’t see this Fionntán and the Fadgies. TG4 apparently doesn’t have an archive. Pity. Would have liked to.

    • Flattered that I am being missed. Apologies for lack of writing. Paid work getting in the way of unpaid! Will try to do better – m’anam le Dia.
