Somebody to Love features the romantic lives of people with physical or intellectual disabilities

There's a documentary on RTÉ One about the romantic lives of people with physical or intellectual disabilities (Somebody to Love, 9.35pm), while new seasons of Modern Family (8.00pm) and Moone Boy (9.00pm) begin on Sky 1.

Somebody to Love, 9.35pm, RTÉ One
This new documentary takes viewers into the romantic lives of people with physical or intellectual disabilities. Among the people featured are wheelchair users Ciara Staunton and her friend Deirdre Mongan. The former had an accident in her early twenties and it took her some time to regain her self-esteem and sense of sexuality. Mongan, meanwhile, is busily preparing for her wedding. Also included are Sarah and John Paul Fitzgerald. They both have Cerebal Palsy and are parents of a young child.

Modern Family, 8.00pm, Sky 1
The Dunphys, Pritchetts and Pritchett-Tuckers are back for a fifth season of this popular US sitcom. Claire and Phil rarely get to spend any alone time together so, in the first of a double bill, they try to rectify that. Meanwhile, Jay and Gloria prepare Manny for his solo trip to Colombia, and Mitch and Cam aim to make summer memorable. In the second episode, Luke and Manny face their first day at high school and Claire starts work at her dad’s closet company.

Moone Boy, 9.00pm, Sky 1
Chris O’Dowd’s comedy is back. It’s summer 1990 and football fever sweeps the nation as the Republic of Ireland play in the World Cup finals for the first time. Spirits are high and everyone is getting behind Jack’s Army, especially in Boyle where the Moone family are well and truly gripped by Italia '90. Everyone except Liam, that is. He’d rather take the clan away on holiday than pay attention to a foreign sport. Martin is appalled with his father.
