    He'll be speaking Irish. It's part of a new show of his investigating minority languages.

    There was an article about it in the Irish Independent today. He's just finished filming and will be speaking some Irish in the episode.

    Why does the bottle that publican Tadhg Ó Direáin (Macdara Ó Fatharta) is holding have a UK duty stamp on it ?? I thought it was illegal not to pay the duty on drink that is for sale in a bar.

    Could they not get there props from Ireland instead of NI or the UK. This IMHO is pretty bad form.

    probably an accurate reflection of what (some) publicans do though.
    They'd make sure to pour it into an "Irish" bottle though!

    Actually, I'm pretty sure it's part of a storyline that Tadhg has been selling booze from over the border - afterall he is the dodgiest publican of all.. :D Granted, most publican's would have the good sense to switch bottles, but it actually shows attention to detail.. :P


  • Registered Users Posts: 908 ✭✭✭Whiskey Devil


    Well done to the guys in Spiddal! Nice pull.. although like mrDerek, don't get the obsession with this guy.. Cool anway! :)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 415 ✭✭Holybejaysus


    When is the episode due to air?


  • Registered Users Posts: 908 ✭✭✭Whiskey Devil


    When is the episode due to air?

    Around new year or just after.. Don't know the exact date yet.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,286 ✭✭✭Gael


    When is the episode due to air?

    The beginning of March, according to postings (in Irish) on the Ros na Rún Facebook page.

    I assume there will be a Seachtain na Gaelige link in here so perhaps mid March will be the airing time?

    He's going to be on this week:

    I watched with great interest and I must say that for a man who was reading a phonetic spelling of the words he did very well. I'm a huge fan of Fry and seeing him act in an Irish language soap opera was very enjoyable.

    Maith an fear Fry. Nár laga Dia thú!

    I had to laugh at Stephen Fry on Twitter the other day

    "A good day to be Irish. You beat England at cricket. Our revenge is that I'm appearing on Rós na Rún tonight"
    :D

    Delighted to see him there and draw attention to the language... he's a really fascinating individual.. pity he couldn't have been in it longer..
