Ceoldrama is repeated on TG4 today

Good news everybody, An Ceoldráma, the series I cut last year for director Colm Bairéad is being repeated on TG4 in the run up to christmas. The series runs for 4 weeks with the first episode airing this tea time at 5:55 (Dec 3rd). If you missed it the first time out, nows your chance to see it.

The series was nominated for 3 IFTA’s last year, Best Director, Best Youth and The Irish Language Award.
