Caoimhín Ó Súilleabháin and Niall McGrath.

Join five Mayo characters as they journey on TG4 series

A HOST of colourful Mayo characters will be appearing in Turas Bóthair, series four, which will be airing on TG4, commencing Thursday, April 15.

With cars across Ireland rigged with cameras, allowing us to eavesdrop on what people are really talking about, we'll hear from five Mayo people - Seoirsín Bashford, who journeys with her Galway bestie Sorcha de Faoite, friends since school Caoimhín Ó Súilleabháin and Niall McGrath, and Darren Ó Riagáin and Pádraig Ó Taidhg.

The series puts its finger on the pulse of the Irish psyche, giving us a unique slice of life normally hidden behind closed doors.

As well as an array of engaging drivers and their passengers, it features moments of joy and sadness, comedy and tragedy, love and loss, friendship and romance, regret and reflection, despair and hope as drivers and passengers share their personal stories and views on love, relationships, sex, drag queens, drugs, illness, death, scams, Greta Thunberg and the environment, childhood obesity, WW3, 2020 and the first lockdown.

Among those stories, in episode three, Caoimhín shares his heartfelt story about his wife Oonagh who died from cancer.

Turas Bóthair will be airing for six weeks on TG4, commencing April 15.
