ILBF series Dul i bhFiáin begins Thursday 10pm on TG4

New Irish Language Broadcast Fund series Dul i bhFián follows outdoor experts Frainc MacCionnaith and Darach Ó Murchu as they embark on a journey from Down to Kerry foraging for food as they go. The 6-part series from Big Mountain Productions begins on Thursday 11th October at 10pm on TG4.

For centurys people walking the length and breath of Ireland had to forage for their food. The hardest time to do this was between March and May when nature offered little to sustain the hungry traveller. This time was known as ‘the Hungry Gap’.

Now two men have come together to make such a journey during this difficult time; Frainc MacCionnaith a skilled angler from Ulster and Darach Ó Murchú a mountaineering guide living in Munster.

Carrying just a basic store of provisions their adventure will take them from Co. Down to the other end of the country finishing in Co. Kerry. As they travel, like the journey men of old, they will use all their skills and experience to forage for their food.

Set in Ireland’s dramatic and often challenging landscape we follow these men as their hunt for wild foods brings them closer to nature, tradition and their country. 

Dul i bhFián Thursdays at 10pm on TG4.


Tosaíonn Dul i bhFiáin, sraith nua de chuid an CCG, Déardaoin beag seo ar 10 i.n. ar TG4

Leantar Frainc MacCionnaith agus Darach Ó Murchu, beirt shaineolaí ar an saol amuigh faoin aer, de réir mar a thaistealaíonn siad ó Chontae an Dúin go Contae Chiarraí agus iad ar lorg bia fiáin sa tsraith nua teilifíse de chuid an Chiste Craoltóireachta Gaeilge, Dul i bhFiáin. Tosóidh an tsraith ó Big Mountain Productions, a bhfuil sé chlár inti, Déardaoin 11ú Meán Fómhair ar 10 i.n. ar TG4.

Ar feadh na gcianta, bhí ar shiúlóirí fud fad na hÉireann bia a chuardach. An tréimhse idir Márta agus Bealtaine ab ea an tréimhse ba dheacra orthu mar ba lú an bia a bhí ar fáil leis an taistealaí a chothú ansin. Tugadh an Bhearna Ocrach ar an tréimhse seo.

Anois, tá beirt fhear i ndiaidh teacht le chéile lena leithéid de thuras a dhéanamh sa tréimhse dheacair seo; Frainc Mac Cionnaith, iascaire oilte ó Chúige Uladh . . . agus Darach Ó Murchú treoraí sléibhteoireachta atá ina chónaí i gCúige Mumhan.

Cuifear tús lena gcuid eachtraí nuair a thógfaidh siad na seoltaí i gContae an Dúin le haghaidh a thabhairt ar Chontae Chiarraí, gan ach an bunstóras bia acu. Agus iad ag taisteal, amhail na fir taistil fadó, úsáidfidh siad a gcuid scileanna agus taithí le teacht ar bhia.

Leantar an bheirt fhear seo dé réir mar a théann siad ar thóir bia fiáin agus iad ag plé le tírdhreach suntasach na hÉireann, rud atá dúshlánach go maith in amanna. Ar a dturas, tugtar ar ais go dtí an dúlra, go dtí an traidisiún agus go dtí a dtír féin iad.
