TG4 wins award for "John Doherty – Ar Leirg na Gaoithe"

TG4 has won  the Arts  Programme Award at the Celtic Media Festival 2013 in Swansea.      John Doherty – Ar Leirg na Gaoithe won this category in competition with major programmes from Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The programme celebrates the musical legacy of Donegal’s  John Doherty:  a master fiddler, storyteller, singer and travelling tinsmith, one of the last links to an ancient way of life. His musical ability and his reputation continue to fascinate all who hear of him and his music.

In the documentary  a young Donegal fiddle player, Ciarán Ó Maonaigh explores the life and influences of his musical hero and through rare archive footage of John Doherty, and of Donegal and its people, he brings a taste of a disappearing world and a glimpse of John’s musical genius. Produced by independent production company Éabhlóid,  director Eoghan Mac Giolla Bhríge was  in Swansea to receive the  award for a production that was part-funded by the Broadcast Authority of Ireland.
