Celebrating the 21st anniversary of the Garda Representative Association.

A light hearted discussion on respect for the Gardaí is followed by a performance of the Garda band conducted by Tommy Boyle. The studio audience of Gardaí dance along.

A special edition of 'Trom agus Éadrom' celebrates the 21st anniversary of the Garda Representative Association.

'Trom agus Éadrom' broadcast on 15 May 1983. The presenter is Liam Ó Murchú.

The popular bilingual chat show 'Trom agus Éadrom', took its name from the mix of heavy and light content the show covered. The series was presented by Liam Ó Murchú, who was on a mission to,

Demonstrate to the plain people of Ireland that the Irish language is not the exclusive property of perfect speakers

(RTÉ Guide, 3 December 1976).

Bhí a fhios ag Liam Ó Murchú go raibh a lán daoine in ann Gaeilge a thuiscint, cé nach raibh siad in ann í a labhairt agus cheap sé go mba chóir go mbeadh clár ann dóibh siúd.

If people wanted to contribute to an Irish-language discussion in English, then that was fine with him. 'Trom agus Éadrom' was a very popular format that ran from 1975 to 1985.
