Hi all!

For lack of anything better to do, I've been having a nose around the TG4 archives again :lol: I've found a show that might well appeal to a lot of people on this forum, particularly those who love trad music. I first watched it last time I was in Ireland, and came home to discover there are lots of episodes archived, so here they are!

To find this, simply go to the website www.tg4.ie

At the top of the purple page click 'TG4 Beo'
The same button at the top of the red page
Down the side of the new window that appears, choose 'Ceol-Cartlann'
Look for the programs (various dates) called 'Geantraí' - click play and enjoy!

Some have subtitles, some don't, but either way it's great music!

More for Lúnasa fans, there's a fairly recent episode of Geantraí presented by Breda Smyth (She's Sean Smyth's sister, he's the chap who plays fiddle in Lunasa). It features Breda Smyth, Sean Smyth, Cora Smyth and their dad on fiddles together - it's amazing!!!!
