Beidh Aonach Amárach la Mayo Advertiser:

A TV programme about Mayo sheep farmers produced and presented in Mayo earlier this year received national and international recognition this week after TG4 revealed that Beidh Aonach Amárach was one of the most watched TV programmes on the Irish language channel this year.

The documentary, presented and produced by Westport broadcaster Piaras Ó Raghallaigh in association with Cahill Media, correlated the decline of the traditional sheep fairs with the difficulties facing Mayo sheep farmers at present.

The programme was broadcast in the popular Cogar slot on TG4 and featured constantly in the top five programmes broadcast and watched on TG4 during 2007. This week the programme was highly commended by TG4 commissioning editors and received glowing reviews in the Irish Times and the Irish Independent. The programme is now set to feature in the International Celtic film and TV festival in the New Year.
