Three 60 - the popular magazine style programme is back again for the summer with a chance to meet a range of people with a personal story to share. Travelling the length and breadth of the country we meet people who share their stories with us. From a Galwegian comedien with Tourettes syndrome to the Irish Wheelchair rugby team preparing for the European Championships - the range of stories will provide a compelling insight to many aspects of life, society and attitudes.
From Monday 28th May at 7.30pm on RTÉ One, viewers can tune in to this quirky but thought provoking television series which enables interesting people all over Ireland to share their personal stories. This is a reality show with a difference and Three 60 is delighted to welcome back our presenter Seonaid Dunne to Irish television screens. As a result of a house fire, Seonaid lost her legs and an arm. Three years ago, Seonaid told her own personal story on national television. Since than, she has progressed to being a skilled television presenter and a regular guest and commentator on Irish radio programmes.
The programme is sponsored by Rehab Group.
Over the next eight weeks, Seonaid offers a warm introduction into the lives of people who have important stories to tell. Seonaid sets the scene for each story, inviting the viewer in to the personal world of each individual featured. After that, central characters are offered the space and time to share their thoughts, experiences and reflections on a range of real-life situations.
