This initiative is our latest response to that demand we are confident that it will prove very popular and generate favourable comment. Showcasing emerging talent is a core part of TG4’s mission, in sport as in other areas of cultural activity and this Spring will see us prove the truth of the Irish proverb “Mol an óige agus tiocfaidh sí.”
