Gaoth Dobhair broadcaster Áine Ní Bhreisleáin is presenting the new show Bladhaire in the RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta autumn schedule.
Bladhaire means flame and is broadcast every Thursday and Friday from 3 pm – 5 pm.
The magazine programme features a mix of entertainment, live music sessions in studio, interviews with Irish speakers around the world, events, music reviews, sports and more, and is produced by Damien Ó Dónaill.
Sports legends including All-Ireland winning Kerry intercounty footballer Dara Ó Cinnéide, and Donegal’s own All-Ireland winning captain Anthony Molloy have been interviewed on the show in its first two weeks, and they’ve interviewed people from France to Canada.
Áine Ní Bhreisleáin has been more familiar to listeners as a news journalist with the station, but she presented magazine show Barrscéalta during the summer, and she welcomes this new challenge.
“I’m so delighted about the new series. It’ll be light and fun, with music, laughs and great chat with guests all over Ireland and abroad.
“We’ll cover all kinds of things, from events to news stories, to campaigns, and more, and we’ll be hoping to attract some new younger listeners too.
“People can follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for all the news and pictures, and to listen back to clips from the show.”
Bladhaire is broadcast on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta on Thursdays and Fridays 3 pm – 5 pm
