ANYONE with an appetite for a good Irish story, whether it’s from up-and-coming talent living in Ireland or those with strong connections to Ireland in the UK, will enjoy a new television show that is launching on Sky TV in May.
The Irish at Home & Abroad is a brand new, hour-long magazine-style TV programme which will air on Sky 212 and Freesat 161 every Thursday night commencing May 11 at 7 p.m.
This authentic and diverse programme will showcase business, culture, tourism, sport, entertainment and everything in between in Ireland and the UK, highlighting the successes of the Irish at home and abroad.
Hosted by renowned master of ceremonies, DJ and broadcaster Henry McGlade in Ireland and popular radio show presenter and broadcaster Martin Logan in the UK, the show will appeal to those who like to keep in touch with the best that Ireland has to offer.
Henry, from Castlebar, explained: “The show’s purpose is to highlight Ireland’s interests in the UK and enjoy the successes of the Irish at home, and in doing so forge partnerships, develop links and draw parallels between the two communities.”
Martin added: “There is a lot to be excited about when it comes to Irish business, culture and tourism, and we aim to showcase the best that Ireland has to offer through those who are still living at home and those who have made the UK their home.”
Both Henry and Martin have decades of broadcasting experience and are no strangers to the small screen. Fans of their respective programmes on Irish TV will be delighted to welcome them back and there is no doubt they will grow their loyal followings over the coming months and years with this new venture.
Anyone with a story they think would be of interest to viewers of The Irish at Home & Abroad can contact the show’s producers, Frame Productions, through the website www.irishathomeandabroad.com or by calling (094) 9310941.
