Faoi Bhláth, anocht ar a 8 ar RTÉ ONE

Sa chlár seo tugann Aedín Ní Thiarnaigh aghaidh ar chuislí na hÉireann; na haibhneacha. Is cois abhann a fhásann cuid de na bláthanna fiáine is aitheanta atá againn; Cam an Ime, Trom, Léine Mhuire agus Grán Arcáin. Déanann Aedín iniúchadh ar an seanchas agus ar na cuimhní cinn a bhaineann leis na bláthanna coitianta seo agus foghlaimaíonn sí faoi na húsáidí éagsúla gur féidir a bhaint astu.

Casann muid le stiúrthóir Corrib Beo, Micheál Ó Cinnéide a insíonn dúinn mar a chuireann na haibhneacha le rath na mbláthanna agus leis an gceardaí Carina Coyne a mbaineann úsáid as an cam an ime ina ceardlann i nDúiche Sheoighe.

Faoi bhláth

I gCorca Dhuibhne, bíonn an Grán Arcáin faoin spotsholas agus castar leis an oide dúlra Darach Ó Murchú a dhéanfaidh céir leigheas as na bláthanna buí do haemaróidí.

Caitear seal i gContae na Gaillimhe leis, agus faigheann muid oideas blasta eile ón luibheolaí leigheas Karin Müller do bhláthanna an troim.

In this episode Aedín Ní Thiarnaigh visits Ireland's rivers, a habitat which is home to some of our most well-known wildflowers; Buttercups, Elderflowers, Cuckoo Flowers and Lesser Celandines. Aedín delves into the folklore and the childhood memories associated with these native flowers and learns about their uses in craft, medicine and cookery.

On the banks of the river Corrib, Corrib Beo director Micheál Ó Cinnéide, chats to Aedín about the benefits rivers provide for our wildflowers. We also meet craftswoman Corina Coyne who harvests buttercups to use in her workshop in Joyce Country.

On the Dingle Peninsula, Lesser Celandines are in the spotlight and outdoor instructor Darach Ó Murchú shows us how the flowers can be used in an ointment for haemorrhoids.

In County Galway we get another tasty recipe from medicinal herbalist Karin Müller, using flowers from the Elder Tree
