Join Sharon Ní Bheoláin in this first programme of the series and learn some words and phrases that will help you talk about your background and where you live.

Sharon visits the lively city of Galway and and meets TG4 presenter Aoife Ní Thuairsig who tells her about her life and growing up in the Connemara Gaeltacht.

A short plane trip takes Sharon to the island of Inis Meáin to visit Tarlach de Blacam and find out about the company he founded there in 1985 - ‘Inis Meáin Knitwear’.

The company has grown from strength to strength and now exports its products throughout the world.

Soundscape takes some ‘time-out’ from learning the language and eavesdrops on people who use Irish as a natural part of their everyday lives. This week we eavesdrop on what men saving hay in Conamara have to say to each other.

‘An Grá Faoi Ghlas’ is a tongue-in-cheek parody of ‘reality TV’ and provides an entertaining way of reinforcing the language and phrases that are presented throughout the programme.

Darren shows an interest in Sorcha but she’s not attracted to him as she prefers Máirtín. Rita also has her eye on Máirtín so look out for sparks …….
