15 years since it was announced that the country's first Irish language television channel, Teilifís na Gaeilge, was to be re-named TG a Cheathair, or TG4.

The change is part of an effort to establish the station as the country's four national TV service and extend its audience.

The channel was originally launched in October 1996 providing an Irish language television service.
