    SummaryTá a fhios ag an saol Fódhlach scéal an náibhí Éireannaigh agus oibrithe imircigh. Thóg ar a laghad ball amháin d’fhormhór theaghlach na hÉireann, idir fhir agus mhná, an bád bán go dtí an Bhreatain i rith na hatógála móire a bhí ar bun sa Bhreatain tar éis an chogaidh. Go deimhin, thug muintir na hÉireann a n-aghaidh soir thar sáile ar feadh na nglún ag lorg oibre agus cuireadh suimeanna móra airgid abhaile lena linn. This film looks at the mixed experiences of Irish emigrants in post-war Britain. Ironically, while emigrant remittances in the 1950s and 1960s amounted to £25 and £50 million respectively, many of those living in Britain today dream of returning home to Ireland but cannot afford to so.The story of the Irish navvy is well known to many as is the story of the emigrant worker who left the shores of Ireland to seek work in Britain during the rebuilding phase following the Second World War. This is the story of the struggle they undertook and how the money which was sent home provided for others.

    Notes and commentsAmharc Eireann was a series of Irish language newsreel films commissioned by Gael Linn, to be shown in Irish cinemas from 1959 to 1964. The series began with 36 issues, each containing a single item, which were distributed to cinemas monthly between 1956 and 1959. Each of these 36 films featured an individual subject; e.g."Aerphort Na Sionainne" focuses on Shannon Airport. In 1959 a trial issue, or eagran, was produced, followed by 269 weekly issues, of approximately four minutes duration, usually containing four items. The final newsreel was released in August 1964.

    SummaryD'imir Angela Downey d'fhoireann Shinsir Chill Chainnigh sa chamógaíocht i 1972 agus d'éirigh lena leathchúpla an éacht chéanna a bhaint amach i 1974. Bhuaigh an bheirt acu 12 bonn dá gcontae. Tugtar Ré na Downeys ar na blianta idir 1985 agus 1991 nuair a bhuaigh Cill Chainnigh 7 gCluiche Ceannais na hÉireann i ndiaidh a chéile. Lean conspóid iad ach níl aon amhras faoi ach go raibh tábhacht mhór ag baint leis an gcúpla seo i stair na camógaíochta agus an ról a bhí acu sa chluiche. The Downeys: Angela Downey made her debut for the Kilkenny Senior Camogie team in 1972 and her twin sister Ann followed in 1974 winning 12 All Ireland Medals each with the county. The Downey Era as it became known was between 1985 and 1991 when Kilkenny won 7 All Ireland titles in a row. Much controversy followed them but what cannot be denied is the status of the twins in the history of camogie and the role that they played within the game.

    SummaryMick O'Dwyer: An chéad chlár i sraith nua. Is é Mick O'Dwyer a bheidh mar aoi sa chlár speisialta uair an chloig seo. Is do-chreidthe an tseirbhís atá tugtha ag Mick O'Dwyer do Chumann Lúthchleas Gael. Thosaigh sé ag imirt do Chiarraí i 1956 agus níor éirigh sé as go ceann 18 mbliana ina dhiaidh sin, ag baint 4 chraobh agus 11 bhonn sraithe amach le linn na tréimhse sin. A luaithe a chríochnaigh sé mar imreoir chuaigh sé le bainistíocht foirne agus thug sé foireann ó Chiarraí i 1975 go Páirc an Chrócaigh agus bhuaigh siad Craobh na hÉireann. Bhuaigh fear an Choireáin 8 gcraobh uile-Éireann leis an bhfoireann sin idir 1975 agus 1989. Bhí briseadh cúpla bliain aige sula ndeachaigh sé i mbun bainistíochta ar fhoireann Chill Dara i 1991. I 1998 thug sé Cill Dara chomh fada le Cluiche Ceannais na hÉireann agus ba é seo an t-aonú craobh is fiche a raibh Micko páirteach go díreach ann mar imreoir nó mar bhainisteoir. The first in the new series. Mick O'Dwyer is tonight's guest on this special hour-long episode. The service, which Mick O'Dwyer has given the GAA, is just incredible. He started playing for Kerry in 1956 and didn't give it up for 18 years; in the meantime he has won 4 championships and 11 league medals. As soon as he gave up playing he became manager and took Kerry to Croke Park in 1975 where they won the All-Ireland. This man from Waterville won 8 All Ireland's in total with this team between 1975 and 1989. He then took a couple of years off until in 1991 he became manager of the Kildare team. In 1998 he took Kildare as far as the All Ireland Championship and this brought the number of finals in which Micko participated in as player or manager to 21.

    Summary'An Fear Beag' a thugann siad ar Mháirtín Beag Mac Aodha as Cill Charthaigh, an peileadóir is fearr a tháinig as Dún na nGall lena linn. Ní dhéanfar dearmad go brách ar an bua stairiúil a bhí ag Máirtín lena chontae dúchais i 1992 tar éis dóibh Baile Áth Cliath a chloí i gCluiche Ceannais na hÉireann. Bhuaigh sé dhá All Star in 1983 agus i 1992. Nuair a d'éirigh Brian McEniff as bainistíocht Dhún an nGall i 1994 ní raibh aon amhras ar Mháirtín ach gur theastaigh an jab uaidh. Martin McHugh: Máirtín Beag Mac Aodha from Kilcar also known as 'The Small Man' is the best footballer to come from Donegal. The historic win that Máirtín had with his home county in the 1992 All Ireland Final against Dublin will never be forgotten. He won two All Stars the first in 1983 and again in 1992. When Brian McEniff retired as manager of the Donegal team in 1994, Máirtín had no doubt that he wanted the job.

    SummaryDermot Earley: 'An peileadóir is fearr nár bhuaigh Craobh na hÉireann riamh' an nath is minicí a úsáidtear le cur síos a dhéanamh ar Dermot Earley. I 1966 d'imir sé ar fhoirne faoi 18, faoi 21, sóisir agus sinsir a chontae, éacht nach mbaintear amach go minic ag léibhéal an chlub, gan trácht ar chontae. D'imir sé i gcluiche ceannais na hÉireann 1980 ach fuair Ciarraí an lámh in uachtar ar fhir Ros Comáin an lá sin. 'The best footballer who never won an All Ireland title' is the way most people describe Dermot Earley. In 1966 he played on the county's under 18, under 21, junior and senior teams. This is a feat which is difficult to acquire at club level not to mention at county level. He played in the 1980 All Ireland Final for Roscommon, but Kerry came out on top that day.

    SummaryNa Rackards: Nuair a labhraítear ar iománaíocht na gcaogaidí bítear ag caint ar Loch Garman agus ina dhiaidh sin ar na Rackards, Nicky, Bobbie agus Billy. Ba é Nicky ba shine, fear a d'imir peil agus iománaíocht dá chontae agus dá chúige sular thosaigh an bheirt eile, i ndeireadh na ndaichidí. Ach i dtús na gcaogaidí tháinig borradh faoin iomanaíocht sa chontae agus i 1955 bhuaigh Loch Garman Craobh na hÉireann don chéad uair ó 1910. The Rackards: When we speak of hurling in the fifties we speak of Wexford and the Rackards, Nicky, Bobbie and Billy. Nicky was the eldest, played football and hurling for his county and his province before the other two started in the late forties. But in the early fifties the hurling in the county exploded and in 1955 Wexford won the All Ireland for the first time since 1910.

    SummaryIs minic a dhéantar dearmad anois gur chaith Seán Boylan as Dún Búinne beagnach 20 bliain ag imirt le hiománaithe na Mí sular tairgeadh post dó mar bhainisteoir foirne i 1982. Ag an am shíl sé gur ar an bhfoireann iomána a bheadh sé i gceannas ach bhí dul amú air. Tá cheithe Chraobh na hÉireann buaite ag Seán leis an Mí, 1987, 1988, 1996, 1999. It is often forgotten that Seán Boylan, from Dunboyne played hurling for Meath before he was offered the job of team Manager in 1982. At the time he thought that he would be managing the hurling team, he was mistaken. He has won four All Ireland titles with Meath, 1987, 1988, 1996, and in 1999.

    SummaryClár faisnéise faoi Chigire de chuid an RUC, William Limerick Martin, a cailleadh i ndiaidh a bhuailte i nGaoth Dobhair. Cé gur tharla an eachtra sin os cionn 100 bliain ó shin, ní hé sin le rá nach bhfuil an rud céanna fós ag tarlú sa lá atá inniu ann. Tugtar léargas dúinn sa chlár seo ar chúlra an scéil ar fad agus faighimid eolas ar phearsaí a raibh trácht mór orthu i stair na hÉireann ina dhiaidh sin. This documentary gives us an insight into the murder of an RUC Inspector, William Limerick Martin, who was battered to death in Gweedore. The incident happened over a hundred years ago but it still has echoes of today - punishment beatings, early prisoner releases and the importance of who controls power and the law. This documentary goes behind the story to examine the personalities and the circumstances leading to the death. We're introduced to people who were to become famous in later Irish history.

Sa chlár faisnéise seo dírítear ar an tionchar atá ag an ngalar ar shaol is ar dhearcadh ceathrar ban a tháinig slán ó ailse bhrollaigh nó a bhfuil sé fós ag dul dóibh. Insíonn na mná faoin bpreab a baineadh astu nuair a thuigeadar go raibh an galar orthu, an chaoi a dhéileáil siad le cíoch a chailleadh, le ceimiteiripe agus le saol an teaghlaigh sna míonna tar éis dóibh an fáthmheas a fháil. Is í seo Breast Cancer Awareness Month agus dar le Cumann Ailse na hÉireann tá ardú ar an líon ban a bhfuil ailse ag dul dóibh le tamall de bhlianta. Almost two thousand women suffer from breast cancer each year in Ireland and they are never prepared for what's in store for them. In this documentary we take a look at the impact of cancer on their lives and we look at some women who have survived the disease and others who are still suffering from it. They talk to us about the shock of discovering had cancer, how they dealt with a mastectomy, with chemotherapy and with family life after the diagnosis. This is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and according to The Irish Cancer Society the number of people suffering from cancer has been steadily increasing over recent years.

    SummaryA look at the wreck of the HMS Vanguard which went down off Dublin Bay in 1875. An HMS Vangaurd: Chuaigh an HMS Vanguard, bratlong Chabhlaigh Sasanach, go grinneall in 1875. Bhí an long ag taisteal ó Kingstown (Dún Laoghaire) go Queenstown (Cóbh) le trí long chogaidh eile - a comhlonga - ar thuras chun neart agus cumhacht Chabhlach na Breataine a thaispeáint do mhuintir na hÉireann. Go luath tar eis dóibh Dún Laoghaire a fhágáil, tháinig ceo trom orthu. 14 míle amach ó Chuan Bhaile Átha Cliath, bhuail ceann de na longa eile an Vanguard agus chuaigh sí go tóin poill in uair an chloig amháin. Níor cailleadh éinne. Sa chlár seo beimid ag tumadh ar an Vanguard in éineacht leis an Marlin Sub Aqua Club atá lonnaithe i mBaile Átha Cliath. Tá an raic in uisce suas le 52m agus cé go bhfuil sí níos mó na 125 bliain d'aois, tá cuma an-mhaith uirthi agus seasann sí amach mar thumadh eisceachtúil i bhfarraigí an domhain. In 1875, 14 miles out of Dublin Bay, the HMS Vanguard went down in controversial circumstances. The ship, the flagship of the English Navy, was travelling with three sister ships on a tour designed to show the might of the Navy. A fog descended not far out of Dún Laoghaire and during routine maneuvers, the Vanguard was rammed by one of its sister ships. She went down in 1 hour with no loss of life. The Éire Fo-Thoinn team dives on the Vanguard with the Marlin Sub Aqua Club. A deep dive of up to 52m, the wreck is intact and is unique in Ireland waters, if not the world.

    SummaryThe sinking of the RMS Leinster in 1918. RMS Leinster: Bhí an RMS Leinster ar cheann de cheithe long a tógadh i 1897. Ar an 10ú lá de Mhí Dheireadh Fómhair, 1918 ar ghnáth-thuras idir Dún Laoghaire agus Holyhead sa Bhreatain Bheag, rinne an U-bhád UB 123 ionsaí ar an Leinster, scaoil sí trí thoirpéad léi agus taobh istigh de 8 nóiméad, bhí an Leinster imithe go grinneall. Cailleadh níos mó ná 500 duine. Is í an dara tragóid is mó i bhfarraigí na hÉireann í, tar éis an Lusitania. Sa chlár seo beimid ag tumadh ar an RMS Leinster. RMS Leinster: The RMS Leinster was one of four ships built in 1897. On the 10th of October 1918 on a routine trip from Dún Laoghaire to Holyhead in Wales, she was attacked by a U boat , the UB 123. She was hit by three torpedo's and within eight minutes the RMS Leinster had sunk. More than 500 people lost their lives.

    SummaryAn Aud: Bhí an Aud páirteach san Éirí Amach i 1916. D'iompar sí armlón ón nGearmáin go hÉireann faoi cheannas Roger Casement. Tháinig Arm na Breataine uirthi agus leanadh í chomh fada le Cuan Chorcaí. Faoin am seo, bhí a fhios ag an gcaptaen go raibh teipthe orthu agus chuir sé an bád agus na hairm go tóin poill. Tá sí fós ann - thíos faoi 33m d'uisce, 4 mhíle amach ó Chuan Chorcaí. Sa chlár seo beimid ag tumadh ar an Aud. Bhí armlón mór ar bord agus tá cuid mhór de seo fós le feiceáil uirthi. Tá an scéal fite fuaite le Éirí Amach 1916 agus go mór mór leis an méid a tharla do Roger Casement. Beimid ag plé an Éirí Amach agus an scéal ó thaobh na mara de. The Aud was involved in the Easter Rising 1916. Disguised as a Norwegian trawler, she transported arms from Germany to Ireland under the direction of Roger Casement. She managed to reach Kerry undetected, but at this point the British Army became suspicious and began to follow the ship. The Aud continued as far as Cork Harbour, where the Captain decided it was better to scuttle the ship rather than let the Army take control. The Aud lies in 33m of water, 4 miles out of Cork Harbour. A dive on history - we explore the story of the Aud and it's part in the Easter Rising.

    SummaryNa Connollys: D'imir seachtar de mhuintir Uí Chonghaile don Chaisleán Gearr, Gaillimh nuair a bhuadar craobh na gclub i 1980. Sa chlár seo díríonn muid isteach ar thriúr acu, John, Joe agus Michael. Is iad seo an t-aon triúr deartháireacha riamh a bhí ina gcaptaein i gcluichí ceannais na hÉireann ar fhoireann idirchontae. Is ó Chonamara do mhuintir na Connollys agus tá a rian sin le feiceáil go soiléar ar an nGaeilge bhreá atá le cloisteáil uathu. D'imir an triúr acu i 1980 nuair a bhuaigh Gaillimh Craobh na hÉireann don chéad uair le 57 bliana. Thug Joe Connolly óráid an lá sin, agus deirtear go bhfuil sé ar an óráid ab fhearr a tugadh riamh i bPáirc an Chrócaigh, óráid lán-Ghaeilge. The Connolly's: Seven of the Connolly clan played for Castlegar, Co. Galway the team that won the club championships in 1980. This programme features three of these players: John, Joe and Michael. These are the only three brothers ever to captain an inter-county team in an All Ireland final. The Connollys come from Conamara and this is still obvious from the great Irish that they speak. The three brothers played in 1980 when Galway won the All Ireland for the first time in 57 years. Joe Connolly gave the speech that day and it is said that that was the best ever speech made in Croke Park, and it was made solely through Irish.

Cé hiad na hÉireannaigh luaithe seo - na daoine a thóg struchtúir chasta cosúil leis na tuama pasáiste atá ag Brú na Bóinne - daoine nach ndéantar trácht ar bith dóibh inár stair?

    SummaryTugann an clár seo léargas dúinn ar na hathruithe atá tagtha ar shaol mhuintir na tuaithe tar éis 30 bliain sa Chomhphobal. Tá feirmeoirí na hÉireann anois i ngreim ag cultúr an tuilleamaí, ag braith go mór ar airgead na hEorpa. Le blianta beaga anuas tá an EU ag iompú i dtreo cúnamh a thabhairt do scéimeanna forbartha tuaithe, ach in ainneoin seo tá mórán do lucht na tuaithe amhrasach mar gheall ar an easpa pleanála ag lucht déanta polasaithe an Rialtais. This programme gives us an insight into the changes of rural life after 30 years of membership in the European Communities. Irish farmers are now caught up in the culture of Dependence, when they rely on European funding as a means of living. In recent years the EU has put much work in rural development schemes, but despite this, people from the rural community are doubtful as to the amount of planning that goes into these government policies.

    SummaryIs é an tseachtain dheireanach ag Fiachra é mar bhailitheoir ticéad do CIE tar éis 40 bliain ag obair dóibh. Tá geata casta tagtha chun a áit a thógáil. Téann rudaí chun donais ansin nuair a ghoideann páistí áitiúla dealbha den Teaghlach Naofa as mainséar an stáisiúin agus fágann siad nótaí ag éileamh airgead fuascailte. Ar a lá deireanach níl aon rogha aige ach gach rud a láimhséail é féin agus leis sin tosaíonn sé ar a thuras de na ráillí. It's Fiachra's last week as a ticket collector for CIE after 40 years of service. A spanking new turnstile has arrived to replace him. To make matters worse, the local schoolchildren are robbing the statues of the holy family from the station crib and leaving ransom notes! On his last day he has no choice but to take matters into his own hands and thus begins Fiachra's journey off the rails.

    SummaryOn the Blasket Islands, Co Kerry in the 1930s, an islander tells a day-visiting outsider the story of the young lovers, Liam, Neal and Eileen, who are at the centre of the tale. In flashback, the islander tells about a young Trinity College medical student, Neal. Living a dissolute life, he is seen in his rooms surrounded by bottles of beer, but he finds a copy of Tomas 6 Crohan's The Islandman, which he avidly reads in his rooms and while walking to the Phoenix Park. He decides to travel to the Blasket Islands, where he is greeted in Ireland on the shore at Dunquin, the Dingle Peninsula, by Fr O'Sullivan. Realising that Neal does not understand Irish, Fr O'Sullivan greets the 'stranger' in English, and invites him to use his medical expertise to help an injured fisherman, Liam. At a ceili (dance) Neal talks with Eileen, the schoolteacher, who is engaged to Liam, and who is grateful to him for having saved Liam's injured hand. Neal continues to court Eileen, but, at her spinning wheel one day where she is teaching him Irish, she asks him to compare himself to Liam. Neal acknowledges that Liam is a better man, and he reluctantly returns to his university studies. The following year, while in his college rooms, Neal, once again drinking, hears Eileen sing on the radio, and his interest in the Blaskets is again aroused. Meanwhile, on the island, Liam, who had befriended Neal, is hoping that he will return, while Eileen is wary, realising that she has fallen in love with Neal. The islanders greet Neal on his return and he declares to Eileen and Liam that he'll become an islandman and learn to be a fisherman. Fr O'Sullivan challenges Neal's love for Eileen, describing Liam and Eileen as 'children', and suggests that he return to the mainland. Neal declares that while he loves Eileen, he's satisfied just to be near her. Neal is one of the crew in Liam's boat during a fishing trip. Liam falls overboard and Neal rescues him from drowning. However, Liam is badly hurt and the islanders gather around his bed as Neal silently indicates that there is no hope for him. Liam observes this sign and then takes Eileen's and Neal's hands and joins them together, indicating his blessing of their future relationship. He is anointed by Fr O'Sullivan before he dies, while Eileen and Neal are later seen alone on a cliff-top. (V).
    NoteAlso 48 minute version. Released 28th Feb 1938 (Trade Show) and 31 March 1939 (general release). This was the only film made by Irish National Film Corporation, a breakaway group, led by Donal O'Cahill, from Hibemia Films, which made THE DAWN (Irl 1936) and UNCLE NICK (Irl 1938). Unlike Hibemia, which seems to have only employed local technical expertise, many of the crew for THE ISLANDMAN seem to have come from Britain. The actors were from amateur and professional groups, including the Gate Theatre, Dublin and the Cork Shakespeare Company. Eileen Curran was a teacher of elocution and singing at St Aloysius College, Cork and was a founder-member and player with the Shakespeare Company. Kruger Kavanagh may also be in this film. Exteriors were filmed on An Blascod Mor (The Great Blasket) from 14 to ca. 28 May 1937, while interiors were filmed at the Palace Cinema (now the Academy), Pearse St, Dublin during June 1937. The Palace was used when the nightly film screenings were finished, though one press report (28/6/1937) refers to the Dublin studio of Scannan Chumain Naisiunta na hEireann/Irish National Film Corporation being used for filming. The cast went to London in July 1937 to dub the soundtrack, as no such facilities existed in Ireland at the time. The dancing scene was shot in the house of Seanin Sullivan. The curragh race (naomhog) was shot from the strand on the Great Blasket. The film's credits list Daisy Murphy in the part of 'Peg', whereas Delia Murphy played this part. Her husband, T J Kieman, was Director of Drama at Radio Eireann. Donal O'Cahill is listed as Donald O'Cahill in the film's credits. Patrick Heale was originally the producer/director as well as scriptwriter, but when extra funds were required for the produc tion, Belfast impresario Frank Duffy became involved (his son plays the part of the boy). Though surviving prints under their different titles and different lengths are not consistent in their credits, it appears that Frank Duffy was involved from the beginning of the film, as he was on the Blaskets during filming there. According to one report (Woman's Life 1/4/1939), a Mr Milaarden, a Breton, was also one of the film's backers, and it is stated that the film cost £3,000 to make. This report also says that some scenes were shot at Greystones, Co Wicklow. MFB (30/4/1938:99) lists the director as Dick Bird. MPG lists John Duffy as co-writer of the original story. It has not been determined whether the 48-minute- or 64-minute-version of the film is the original version of the film. MFB gives the film's length as 4,300 ft, and the running time as 48 mins, in its April 1938 review of the film with the title WEST OF KERRY. This version may be the 16mm-version which is available under the title EILEEN AROON. It is also possible that this was the original version of the film and that the 64-minute-version, with the title THE ISLANDMAN, was produced for the March 1939 Irish release of the film. However, a surviving 64-minute-version of the film has the title WEST OF KERRY, which suggests that this title was used for both the 48-minute and 64-minute-versions of the film. The 64-minute-version of the film was released in the USA under the title MEN OF IRELAND. No version of the film with the title THE ISLANDMAN has been discovered, though this was the Irish release title of the film. In EILEEN AROON there is an introductory voice-over narration delivered by Micheal 6 hEithir (the sports commentator) about the Blasket Islands. It draws attention to the island's Irish-language literary heritage, especially that of 6 Crohan's An tOilednach (The Islandman, Dublin, 1929; trans. by Robert Fowler, London, 1929). Anticipating the future depopulation of the islands, which were abandoned in the 1950s, the narrator quotes 6 Crohan's observation that 'our counterparts the future cannot hold'. The narrator refers to three books associated with the Blaskets. Besides 6 Crohan's An tOilednach which is featured in the film and from which the film takes its title, the other two best known books are Peig Sayers' autobiography Peig (Dublin, 1936), and Maurice O'Sullivan's autobiography Fiche Blian ag Fds (Twenty Years A-Growing, Dublin, 1933; Maynooth, 1982; trans. by M Llewelyn Davis, George Thompson, London, 1933; Oxford, 1951). For an accnt. of life on the islands see George Thompson The Blasket That Was: The Story of a Deserted Village (Maigh Nuad, An Sagart, 1982), which also contains an extended bibliography of books by islanders and by others about the islands; and Robin Flower, The Western Island, or The Great Blasket (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1944 and 1978). "The plot develops into a triangular drama after the Hollywood pattern, and the director takes Hollywood's usual way out'. (EH 1/4/1939:9). 'Why, in Heaven's name, did they have to bring a red triangle to An Blascaod Mor?' (IP 4/4/1939:5).

    SummaryPlaying at a country dancehall, Irish showband saxophonist Danny encounters Annie, a young mute girl, and is with her later when he witnesses the band's manager (who had earlier argued over protection payments) being shot dead by three gunmen. Annie, too, is shot as she wanders towards the scene, and Danny is concussed in the subsequent explosion of the dancehall. Quizzed by detectives Bloom and Bonner as he recovers in hospital, he provides no clues, but after recuperating with his Aunt Mae, rejoining the band at rehearsals, and picking up his tentative relationship with the singer, Deirdre, he hunts down a man wearing an orthopaedic shoe and kills him with his own sub-machine gun. Returning later to the scene to recover the weapon, Danny hides as two of the dead man's associates discover the corpse. Further questioned by Bloom, Danny doesn't comment on a filed photograph he recognises, but subsequently visits the suspect and shoots him. Danny traces the third killer through his estranged wife, who had briefly danced with Danny on the night of the murders. Surprised by Danny as he drives away from a meeting with his mistress, the killer first offers to name 'the big man', but then goads Danny into shooting him. Returning to find the band's drummer paying protection money, Danny shoots the collector, and goes on the run as Deirdre expresses her disgust. At an isolated farmhouse, Danny demands clothes and a haircut from the widowed Mary, who attacks him, bandages him and, inveighing against her late husband's violence, uses Danny's gun to commit suicide. Back at the site of the burnt-out dancehall, Danny comes across a young commercial faith-healer, but is dragged from the caravan by Bonner, who admits to heading the protection racket and is about to shoot Danny when he is himself killed by Bloom.

    SummaryNora Moggin (Angeline Ball), an aspiring actress living in New York, is forced to return to her native Dublin following the sudden death of her father, TV weatherman and unlikely sex-symbol, Arthur (T.P. McKenna). After a four-year absence Nora reunites with her two old friends, Stevie McCutcheon (Susan Lynch) and Kate O'Dowd (Zara Turner) as each tries to come to terms with life, love and each other. All three struggle with lives on the threshold of fulfilment; for whom things are about to go right, ANY TIME NOW... Nora's tale of her great success in New York is, to say the least, inflated and she finds that she is running out of money fast. Kate, a manager in a predatory property firm, has fallen into a routine with her live-in partner Colin (Patrick O'Kane), and tensions are beginning to surface. And Stevie, (Susan Lynch) a freelance illustrator and single parent, living at home with her mother Margaret (Ruth McCabe) struggles to bring up her 11-month-old baby Rosie. Outwardly fun and full of life, Stevie becomes increasingly depressed with no job - and being on her own. And to top it all her ex-husband Johnny (Ciaran McMenamin) seems to be happily carrying on without her. Nora decides that the way out of her financial difficulties is to sell her late father's house. But as no will can be discovered, this may take some time. Kate and Johnny are drawn together when being forced by her boss to evict a tenant in one of the properties leads to them both working together to prevent it happening. Each time they meet the attraction between them grows. While celebrating the success of their collaboration, they end up together. Stevie's birthday arrives and with no hope of a man on the horizon, she turns to weatherman Frank O'Halloran (Owen Roe), sixth son of a seventh son, and colleague of the late Arthur Moggin. He offers to do a psychic reading for her but the blank reading that results means either that their respective futures are entwined or that she's not long for this earth. The tailspin is deep. And Nora's plans for the future are upset too when Mrs Emily Moggin (Brid Brennan) - Arthur's unknown second wife - makes her dramatic entrance. Now she has a stepmother she has never heard of to deal with! (BBC Publicity Notes)
    NoteTX from 20th May until 1 July 2002. "Susan lynch, Angeline Ball, and Zara Turner star in Any Time Now, a new Irish contemporary six-part drama series set in Dublin about the lives, loves, and libidos of three life-long friends, produced by Comet Films for RTE and BBC Northern Ireland. Stevie Macutcheon - Susan Lynch (Amongst Women, Nora), Nora Moggin - Angeline Ball (The Commitments; Randall & Hopkirk Deceased) and Kate O'Dowd - Zara Turner (Where There's Smoke, Sliding Doors) are girls who have known each other long enough to believe that their friendship, at least, is invincible. For starters they've made it into their 30s and between them managed to sleep with 47 men, break 11 hearts, drink about 5,000 pints, buy one house, fail once in marriage and produce a beautiful baby girl. But fate and chance keep reminding them that there are forces out there more changeable than the weather. Set against the backdrop of contemporary Dublin, Any Time Now, also stars Ciaran McMenamin, Patrick O'Kane and a fine line-up of hugely popular and talented Irish actors including: Ruth McCabe (No Tears; Silent Witness), Frankie McCafferty (Ballykissangel); Owen Roe (Ballykissangel); Brid Brennan (Dancing at Lughnasa); Karl Shiels (Attachments, On Home Ground); and Declan Conlon (Bachelors Walk). The sudden death of her father brings Nora back home to the bosom of her closest friends: sensible and settled Kate and single mum, Stevie. But she can't quite bring herself to admit to them that back in New York her biggest role was as a bearded pilgrim father in the St. Patrick's day parade. But, is she the only person not being totally honest? Producer, Lesley McKimm describes Any Time Now as a series which "takes a humorous look at three very different women who are trying to get to grips with life, love and each other. It is witty, very touching storytelling set against the backdrop of cosmopolitan Dublin." Executive producer for RTE, Mary Callery, explains what it was that attracted her to the project: "We were looking for a strong contemporary drama that delivered well-drawn believable characters. But we wanted this done with a light, sure touch. First-time writer, Ali White, has succeeded - brilliantly."

    SummaryNora is adamant that she can beat this interloper who claims to be her stepmother. But the showdown between them ends with Emily showing Nora Arthur's will, in which he's left everything to his new wife. Nora may be down but she comes up fighting. She moves into Kate's house and gets a job. This is the new Nora: single and working as a tour guide on Dublin tour bus, giving her own spin on the local history of Dublin to the bamboozled tourists. Stevie is filled with optimism as she prepares for her date with Frank. She tells Johnny that she is moving on and he agrees saying that he too can now go out with someone. But for some reason this point does not go down too well with Stevie. Feeling guilty about her affair with Johnny, Kate tries hard to be nicer to Colin. But the attraction between Kate and Johnny is too strong and although she tries to stop it they end up meeting frequently. Thinking that things will get better, Colin tells Kate that he wants to have a family, which freaks Kate out even more. Nora discovers that Kate and Johnny are having an affair. She's furious on Stevie's behalf and sees it as an act of betrayal by both. To make matters worse, Stevie asks Kate to be Rosie's guardian, and after a disastrous date - which ends up with Frank and Margaret hitting it off - Stevie announces that she still has feelings for Johnny and is going to seduce him. Consumed by guilt, Kate breaks up with Johnny. Confused, off-keel and feeling rejected, he lopes home only to find Stevie waiting, determined to seduce him. Angry with Kate for what she has done, Johnny and a deliriously happy Stevie celebrate their anniversary in bed. (BBC Publicity Notes)

    SummaryEmily is shocked when Nora serves her with a notice to trial. The gloves are off as they prepare to fight it out in court. Dan Hardigan tries to help Nora, showing her around the courtroom and giving her some of her father's journals, which he saved for her from the house auction. Despite an obvious attraction, Nora doesn't trust him because he represents her stepmother. Frank and Margaret grow further apart as he continues to be unable to open up to her. In the lead-up to her launch as the new weather presenter, Emily appears to exult in her new role, but on the day itself she goes to pieces and Frank has to wade in and save the day. It's Rosie's birthday and all the gang gather in Stevie's house to celebrate. It seems that they're all friends again, putting the Kate and Johnny affair behind them. But Johnny can't move on and Kate still feels attracted towards him. Thrown together one evening, they are inevitably drawn to each other once more. Kate decides to tell Colin that their marriage was a mistake. Colin, unsurprisingly, reacts angrily. But when Kate and Johnny meet at the trial, Johnny decides they have to end it and stop meeting. The court finds in Emily's favour. Nora takes this as proof of her deepest fears - that her father had stopped loving her in the end. She leaves the courtroom surrounded by Stevie, Kate and Margaret.

    SummaryThe morning after the court case, Stevie is feeling a little queasy at breakfast but says nothing. Reflecting on the timing of her last encounter with Johnny, she's convinced she is pregnant. Nora visits Dan's office, and while grateful that he never patronises her about the case she took against Emily, she finds little comfort in the fact that her legal fees are 40,000 pounds. New York suddenly beckons. Overwhelmed by the demands of the job, Emily finally decides to abandon all ambitions of weather forecasting. Séamus, manager and sycophant, begs Frank to take back his old job and Emily puts the Moggin family home up for sale. In the meantime Frank has been doing some serious thinking about Margaret, and galvanised by his reversal of fortune and getting his job back, declares his feelings for her - live on air, during a weather forecast. Margaret is both touched and deeply embarrassed by such a public show of affection. But there's no holding back for either of them now. Johnny discovers through Kate that Stevie may be pregnant. He's shocked and annoyed to find out that he may be a father again - and in such a way. He confronts Stevie, who admits she should have told him and agrees to do a pregnancy test. Nora and Emily finally come to some sort of understanding of each other by the point of Emily's departure. Cynical and cold though Emily's view of the world is, it chimes disturbingly for Nora with her own outlook. While completing the papers on Emily's house sale, Dan Hardigan is made suspicious when she signs with a different name. She brushes it off but he decides to investigate further. When he gives Nora a present of her father's journals, which he had rescued from Emily's auction, his sensitivity and emotional honesty are too much for her and she decides to flee for New York after all. Kate and Stevie reunite in their attempt to stop Nora leaving the country. They speed to the airport. Nora decides that now is the time to stop running. With Stevie now involved with Declan and Kate finally admitting to her feelings for Johnny, it would seem that life has calmed down for all of them. While Emily, now house-less makes plans to emigrate with Tommy Mulligan, the girls help Nora take repossession of her home, and very possibly, her life.

    SummaryDocumentary on the Tailteann Games, a huge sporting and cultural festival first staged in 1924 to celebrate Irish independence. Inspired by the ancient pre-Christian Aonach Festival, the festival attracts athletes from the Irish emigrant world. The programme is structured around the following strands: The provisional government’s decision, in 1922, to stage the Aonach Tailtreann – the Irish Olympic Games as an assertion of the Free State’s cultural independence; the ancient Gaelic festival’s first initiation in 600BC near Tara in honour of Queen Tailte and its survival until the Norman invasion; the formation of the Tailteann Committee under J.J. Walsh, a former nationalist and GAA member from Cork; the planning of the festival and the refurbishment of Croke Park Stadium in Dublin; the inclusion of members of the Irish diaspora in the games; the cancellation of the festival with the onset of the Irish Civil War in August 1922; the opposition of Ernest Blythe and Desmond Fitzgerald to the festival and its resumption; the recruitment of William Butler Yeats to attract international artists and literary figures to the festival (including Pablo Picasso and James Joyce); the organisation of transport; the opening ceremony (with Irish actress Nancy Rock playing the role of Queen Tailte) which reinvented the state in a Celtic context; the programme of events – a hurling match between Ireland and America, a marathon race from Navan to Croke Park, women’s Gaelic games, swimming in Phoenix Park, rowing at Islandbridge, boxing in Portobello, horseracing, clay shooting, archery, etc.; the element of social inclusiveness, unity, and togetherness; the arts events – poetry, Irish dancing, piped band competitions, choral competitions, painting and sculpting competitions, theatrical events; the invitation of non-Irish American and Australian athletes to the games – including the American high jumper, Harold Osborn (who competed against Kerry sportsman Larry Stanley) and American swimming champion, Johnny Weissmuller; motorcycling events in Phoenix Park (including J.W. Shaw from Belfast); an aerial race by the newly-formed Free State Air Corps; the prize winning ceremony that ended the festival; negative critical responses to the festival in the Dublin Review and the Dublin Opinion; positive comment in the Irish Times; Walsh’s difficulties in maintaining the plan to stage the Games every four years – his discovery of enemies of the Games within the Government, including Minister of Finance, Ernest Blythe, who opposed the Games on economic principles, and demanded that the Committee repay its loans to the Government; Walsh’s retirement from politics in 1927 – on the grounds of opposition to Cumann na Gaedhail’s “pro-Imperialist policies” – and his private fundraising for the 1928 Games; overview of the 1928 Festival – the popularity of Olympic winning athlete, Pat O’Callaghan; the role of women in the events; popular responses to the Games despite government indifference; the rise of Fianna Fail under De Valera; Walsh’s work as an entrepreneur and the preparation for the 1932 Tailteann under management of other Committee members; the overshadowing of the Tailteann by the 1932 Eucharistic Congress, an event that represented the Free State in another image – the fusion of religion and state; the opening of the 1932 Games by Cardinal McRory, Primate of All Ireland, and Taoiseach Eamon De Valera; the waning popularity of the 1932 Games due to a lack of international athletes; De Valera’s decision, in 1938, to shelve the Games; Walsh’s subsequent disenchantment and the collapse of his moral judgment in supporting Hitler’s Socialist Party during World War II; the documentary ends with an assessment of the contribution of the Tailteann in establishing the post-colonial identity of Free State Ireland.
