In case you missed The Snapper on RTÉ One last week, RTÉ Player have only gone and made it available to watch on 7-day catch-up - so you can watch it until Wednesday June 14! This is the first time a movie has even been available on demand on RTÉ Player. Exciting times, folks.
The Snapper remains a firm favourite among Irish audiences with quotes from the movie catching like wildfire across the country. So, "close your mouth there, Mrs. O’Leary…", grab the popcorn and settle in for a barrel of laughs as one of our favourite homegrown comedies.
Donal Skehan’s new cookery series is on RTÉ One every Tuesday. The show teaches viewers everything they need to know about modern meals by learning lots of tips, hints and cooking hacks. After spending a year on the move in different kitchens around the world, before settling in LA earlier this year, Donal realised the need for quick cooking meals with little equipment for the time-strapped modern home cook.
The first episode is all about one pot and one pan meals to make life easier. From a ‘one pan pasta’ which has racked up over 2 million views across the world on Donal’s YouTube channel to Saltimbocca A La Romana. Watch Donal's Meals in Minutes now on RTÉ Player.
