Skiing: La Plagne, France

New series of the popular travel show featuring holiday destinations with direct flights from Ireland. This week Joe Lindsay and Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin report from La Plagne in the French Alps. Aoibhinn tries skiing for the very first time and Joe's giving snowboarding a go. Highlights include a visit to an igloo village, snowshoeing and a hair-raising ride on an Olympic bobsleigh run.

Joe also takes a short getaway to Limerick, Irish City of Culture 2014, where he visits the new interactive exhibition in King John's Castle, calls into Thomond Park Stadium, home of the Munster rugby squad, and recalls the glamour of flying in a bygone age at the Foynes Flying Boat Museum.

Getaways is a co-production with BBC Northern Ireland and RTÉ One.
