Éalú and Bóithre Iarainn to air on TG4 in the coming weeks.

You wait months for your TV appearances to air then two come along at once!

The two TG4 series I filmed in 2011 are going on air in the first couple of weeks of February.

The first is a documentary series, Bóithre Iarainn, which details some of the incredible stories of major events that took place on Ireland's railway network in the early part of the twentieth century. The episode I featured in involved a bloody shootout at the border station of Clones, as the IRA tried to get their hands on the military weapons that were on board. The series starts on Thursday February 9th at 8pm.

The second series is Éalú, a series about daring prison escapes by Irish convicts. My character, Sean Bourke, was an anarchic communist sympathiser who masterminded the breakout of another prisoner from Wormwood Scrubs. This airs on Thursday 16th February at 7pm.

Both shows were fantastic shoots, so I can't wait to see the final product.
