Recording of a special 1916 radio programme in Belmullet

RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta would like to extend an invitation to the public to the recording of a special radio show about 1916 on February 17 (8 p.m.) in Áras Inis Guaire, Belmullet.

The programme, entitled 1916 - Ceisteanna, Tuairimí, Freagraí, will feature a panel debate and the audience will be invited to participate in the discussion about the national and local elements of the history of 1916.

Do you have a family story to share? Have you an opinion on the Rising you’d like to discuss? If so, RnaG would love you to join them for this programme.

The panel for the show will feature journalist Áine Ní Chiaráin, Tomás Ó hÉanacháin, historian and teacher from Tourmakeady, and Achill historian Tomás Mac Sheáin. RTÉ RnaG presenter Áine Hensey will chair the programme.

The programme is one of a series which will travel to all seven Gaeltacht counties in the country to discuss the Rising with the communities there. The programmes will be broadcast around Easter 2016 on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta. All are welcome to attend this free event.
