Then one day, out of the blue, the Wild Atlantic way brings a handsome stranger to town. Directed by Charlie McCarthy, the series stars Norma Sheahan, Dara Devaney and Peadar Cox.

Made by Pat Collins, who also made a film on the life of novelist John McGahern, Song of Granite is a film which celebrates the life and times of traditional singer Seosamh O hÉanaí (Joe Heaney). 

In Song of Granite the viewer never quite knows what element in the story of the elusive singer will be introduced in what is film as expansive, highly imaginative tone poem.

TG4 fans can also look forward an engaging documentary on a Cork-born woman who won international acclaim for her humanitarian work in two major European wars in the middle of the last century.

Also in the schedule, the efforts of a contemporary remote community to battle against state neglect and the ravages of emigration are charted in another new film for TG4.
