IMEACHT NA n-IARLAÍ

 

Photo: Flight Of The EarlsSa bhliain 1607, sheol triúr Taoiseach Gaelach, Aodh Ó Néill, Ruairí Ó Domhnaill agus Cúchonnacht Mag Uidhir, amach as Cuan Suillí Móire chun na deoraíochta. Le comóradh a dhéanamh ar an eachtra stairiúil seo agus an tábhacht mhór a bhain leis, tosnaíonn sraith úr teilifíse, "Imeacht na n-Iarlaí," ar BBC1 Thuaisceart Éireann ar an Chéadaoin an 24ú Eanáir ar 10.40 i.n. Beidh deis acu siúd a bhfuil teilifís dhigiteach acu amharc ar an chlár trí mheán na Gaeilge ach an cnaipe dearg a bhrú, agus beidh athchraoladh i nGaeilge amháin (le fótheidil) ar an Domhnach ar BBC2 ar 10.45 i.n.

Insíonn láithreoir agus léiritheoir na sraithe, Antaine Ó Donnaile, mar a bheireann na cláracha léargas dúinn ar cheann de na heachtraí ba thábhachtaí i stair na hÉireann.

 

To coincide with the 400th anniversary of the Flight of the Earls, a new three-part series on the events that led to the departure of Hugh O'Neill, Earl of Tyrone; Rory O'Donnell, Earl of Tyrconnell; and Cúchonnacht Maguire, Earl of Fermanagh, begins on BBC1 NI on Wednesday 24th January at 10.40pm. Digital viewers can access the programme simultaneously in English and Irish, and there is also an Irish-only repeat of the programme, with subtitles, on Sunday at 10.45pm on BBC2.

Antaine Ó Donnaile, presenter and producer of the series, tells us how he retraces the steps taken by the Earls and retells their epic story in this powerful visual production.
