Based on new research and on interviews with those who have the inside story about the founding and development of TG4, Súil Eile promises a lively, no-nonsense account of Irish language TV in the last twenty years.

Súil Eile provides an insight into the channel’s unique story from the early, lively campaign for ‘Teilifís na Gaeilge’ right up to to the present day.

Alongside the history of the station the author presents a clear-eyed critical appraisal of the station’s achievements since its inception.

Cathal Póirtéir, Books Ireland March/April 2018

‘How the station came into being as TnaG (later TG4) and the campaigns and controversies that led to its being established form the basis of this fascinating account of the actions, reactions and inactions of activists, politicians, civil servants and television executives … The high quality of research and writing makes Ó Gairbhí’s tome a pleasure to read … Súil Eile is both journalism and history, providing a contextualised, lively and informative view of the who, what, when, where, how and why that gives us TG4 as it is today.’
