Frainc Rua walks Ar Bhealach na Gaeltachta trails in new BBC series
A NEW Irish language lifestyle series follows the marked routes around the Donegal Gaeltacht with its presenter, well-known in West Donegal, meeting those who live and work there – Frainc Mac Cionnaith. The programme’s title is the general name for the four circular long-distance trails in the Gaeltacht areas of Donegal: Slí an Earagail, Slí na Rosann, Slí na Finne and Slí Cholmcille. Ar Bhealach na Gaeltachta is an Imagine Media production for BBC Northern Ireland, with support from Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund and begins on BBC Two Northern Ireland on Monday, 26 May, at 10pm.
Programme one starts with the most northerly of the four trails, Slí an Earagail, where Frainc begins his journey in the picturesque village of Dunlewey. Slí na Rosann is the second episode in the series which concentrates on the Rosses area of West Donegal. Episode three follows the Slí na Finne trail, looping from Fintown to Comeen, on through Cloughan and finishing near Fintown again. This is one of the lesser known parts of the Donegal Gaeltacht, tucked away below the Blue Stack Mountains and a haven for wildlife. In the final episode of the Ar Bhealach na Gaeltachta series, Frainc walks Slí Cholmcille, along the southern coast of county Donegal. Further details on: donegalnews.com
