Donegal immigrants in Glasgow will be sharing their stories on this week’s episode of Gaeil UK on TG4.
There may be a few familiar faces on the show this Thursday 22nd November, which is focused on the many generations of Irish immigrants who now call the UK home.
This week will see presenter Seán Mac an tSíthigh venturing North to Glasgow to meet the large Irish community living there.
With a strong vibrant Donegal presence in the city, Seán speaks with Hudie Ó Fearraigh about the many changes he has seen in the city over the years, before Hudie returns home permanently to Gaoth Dobhair.
Seán visits the set of a new and emotive stage production based on the tragic deaths of ten young potato pickers from Mayo who died in 1937 in a fire on a farm in Kirkintilloch.
Seán then gets an insight into the Irish, Catholic charitable ethos that still remains strong in the education system.
Gaeil UK is a new four-part series which uncovers how the Irish diaspora has assimilated into every aspect of life in the UK while preserving their own very distinctive identity.
Episode two airs on Thursday 22nd November @8pm on TG4.
