IrishTV has launched a new programme entirely focused on events and happenings in Limerick.
Presented by Ciara Revins, Limerick Matters will be broadcast at 7pm every Wednesday evening on IrishTV, which is Ireland’s first international television channel.
Ms Revins, 29, who has been living in Limerick for almost a decade says she’s thrilled to be the face of IrishTV in Limerick.
“It is very exciting and it’s an amazing opportunity and I’m looking forward to highlighting the positive things that are going on in Limerick,” said Ciara, who also presents the Breakfast Show on Clare FM.
“I think the entire country was waiting for this to happen. In Limerick alone there are so many stories in every corner of the county and people are so proud and passionate to tell them to me,” she added.
Recent local events, which have featured on Limerick Matters, included Riverfest and the Great Limerick Run.
A special feature on the Milk Market has also featured in the half-hour programme, which is broadcast weekly.
Based in County Mayo, IrishTV, which was launched by Taoiseach Enda Kenny last month, can be seen by viewers across Ireland, the UK, and Europe on Sky Channel 191.
It is also available on free-to-air satellite, eVision, and online at IrishTV.ie. Content from IrishTV will be broadcast in the United States though the PBS Network.
“We have a host of original programming such as Cooking with Treyvaud with Killarney chef and YouTube sensation Paul Treyvaud who is set to become a huge hit with his unconventional approach,” said IrishTV Head of Broadcast Malachi Cush.
“Grass Roots is the first 32-county agriculture programme and will be hugely based around the small family farm. The Golf Show travels Ireland featuring a different golf club every week, while Storytime is a simple, engaging and educational daily production aimed at 6-10 year olds,” he added.
