The excitement, tension and fun exhibited at Ireland’s country fairs will be captured in Beidh Aonach Amárach - a new programme that will hit our screen later tonight (Thursday, January 10th).
The six-part series showcases competitors who give their everything to be Best in Show; from cakes to cattle; flower-arranging to sheep-shearing; show-jumping to shiny cars.
The best in vegetables; dogs; birds; clothes; arts and crafts will also be featured, along with the army of volunteers who organise and judge these events annually.
The series takes viewers into the heart of the country show scene in Ireland, featuring the very big – Balmoral and Tullamore; the very picturesque – West Kerry and Glencolmcille and the traditional – Finn Valley and Clogher Valley, producers outlined.
Beidh Aonach Amárach - which will be screened on TG4 at 9:30pm tonight - was produced by Crawford McCann Ltd for TG4 and BBC Northern Ireland with funding support from Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund. The programme was produced and directed by Bernadette Morris and was Executive Produced by Mairéad Ní Nuadháin and Kelda Crawford-McCann for Crawford McCann Film & TV.
