Achan Mháirt ar 7.02 leanann sraith Bríd Maloney agus í i mbun comhrá le daoine móra le rá i saol na Gaeilge.

An tseachtain seo, i gclár deireanach na sraithe, buaileann Bríd Maloney leis an aisteoir Mick Lally. Tá na blianta caite ag Mick ar ardán agus ar scáileán ach tá an chuimhne is mó ag mórphobal na hÉireann air as a ról Miley, feirmeoir atá pósta ar Biddy, sa sobaldhráma "Glenroe."

Well Holy God!! In the final instalment of Bríd Maloney's series of conversations with well-known Gaeilgeoirí, Bríd meets actor Mick Lally. Lally has starred in a range of productions for stage and screen, yet he is still most widely recognisable for his role as gormless but lovable Wicklow farmer Miley, husband to Biddy, in RTÉ's long-running Sunday evening soap "Glenroe."

Is ceoltóir, seoltóir agus déantóir uirlise é Eugene Lambe atá ina chónaí i gCinn Mhara, Co. na Gaillimhe. Labhraíonn sé le Bríd faoin cheol, faoin seoltóireacht agus faoin bhád a rinne sé dó féin darbh ainm "Fánaí," agus labhraíonn sé fosta faoin dóigh ina dhéanann sé píobaí uilleann agus feadóga.

Bhí Dermot ina chaptaen ar fhoireann peile Chontae an Lú nuair a bhain siad Craobh na hÉireann sa bhliain 1957. Agus ba eisean an chéad ceoltóir as Éireann a chuaigh caol díreach go dtí Uimhir a 1 sna cairteanna Éireannacha lena amhrán "The Merry Ploughboy."

This week's programme, entitled "Magic Fingers, Magic Toes," focusses on Dermot O'Brien, captain of the All-Ireland-winning Louth team of 1957 and the first Irish artist to go straight into the charts at number one with his single "The Merry Ploughboy."

CLÁR 7: Hector Ó hEochagáin

Hector Ó hEochagáinTá cáil ar fhear mhór na Mí as a stíl neamhfhoirmeálta neamh-urramach agus é i mbun láithriú teilifíse. Is cinnte go meallann an Eochagánach níos mó daoine óga chun na Gaeilge agus tá an-tóir ar a chuid cláracha ileachtrúla taistil ach go háirithe. Níl rud ar bith nach dtiocfadh leis a bheith ina ábhar magaidh ag Hector agus tá neart le rá aige ar achan rud faoin spéir. Bí linn Dé Máirt ar 7.02 nuair a théann Bríd Maloney amú le Hector!

Navan man Hector Ó hEochagáin is well known for his informal and irreverent style of presenting and there can be no doubt that he has helped to make TG4 a big draw for the younger generation in particular. No subject is too sacred for Hector to have a bit of craic about, and he has plenty to say about pretty much everything... join Bríd this Tuesday as she goes "amú le Hector"!
