    Just days after the death of Patrick Kavanagh, Diarmuid O’Muirithe talks to Kavanagh’s old friends about him in McDaid’s pub, Dublin.

    The friends include Thomas McGowan, Tomas Toibin, Hayden Murphy and Dr. O’Riordain. Kavanagh had frequented McDaid’s pub where he mixed with locals and his literary peers.

    “A warm hearted individual and boyish in his humour”.
    “One can feel his spirit still in this pub where he sat for many years. So much of his conversation has lived on...”

  • Information

    The bilingual current affairs series 'Féach' reported on national and interantional events and was broadcast from 1967 to 1984. 'Féach' was aired every Sunday evening and featured reports in both Irish and English.

    The Irish word "Féach" meaning "Look" gives an indication of what the programme was about as editor John Ross stated,

    "It will try to show, from a fresh viewpoint, what is happening at home and abroad each week".

    (RTÉ Guide, 14 July 1967, p.17) The show was originally anchored by Andy O'Mahony with reporting assistance from Sean Duignan and Micheal O'Briain.
