TG4 is dedicating a rake of programs to Séamus Ennis in connection with the centenary of his birth.

Tonight (saturday) Ó bhéal go béal, the bicycle diaries, on Sunday : Molscéal, Louise Mulcahy speaking about the influence Ennis' music had on her, Prionsias ag caint le Séamus Ennis, interview with Ennis from 1977, Molscéal, Neillidh Mulligan speaking about Ennis and his influence , another Molscéal with Peter Browne doing what the other two did and finally Doireann Ní Bhriain's wonderful Hand me down from the early 80s


Séamus 100 also on the TG4 player for the next couple of weeks. Included there is an bunch other stuff, including the also wonderful 'The Irishmen', a documentary by Philip Donellan from the sixties, about the Irish in London with cameos Joe Heaney, Tommy McCarthy with Gabe O'ullivan (I believe) and others, including Josie Sheáin Jeaic MacDonncha on his way from Connemara to London with songs by Ewan MacColl et al. With Ennis standing in as a worker on a bulding site (few were convinced that made for a believable appearance), playing the whistle during break time. A classic.

Hm, just noticed 'The Irishmen' isn't on there as a whole, just the 26 sec fragment of Ennis playing the whistle. A bit of a shame, it's very much worth seeing in full (I have it downloaded but was hoping for perhaps a better copy). My usual way of downloading from the TG4 player doesn't seem to work immediately either.

John Bowman, on RTE radio, has a series of three programmes dedicated to Séamus, very good stuff, last in the series goes out on Sunday next. They are archived here

or direct:

- Bowman on Sunday, 28 april

- Bowman on Sunday, 5 May

They do borrow a lot of material from the series broadcast during the eighties, The Séamus Ennis story, if anyone remembers that, and material also used in the tv programmes linked above.

Something completely different, but I'll stick this one here, rather than start a new thread:

Cloch le Carn : Liam O'Flynn

Message tells me I'm lost. Another penalty for pulling out of the Paris Accord?

Best wishes.

Same here, plus on the Seamus 100 list of videos, I can see all of them except the one with Louise Mulcahy. It tells me "No compatible source was found for this media" and gives me the same messages in Firefox or Chrome. Any ideas?

The Paris accord and the rest of it. Or just being in the wrong place. The link is sound and working from here anyway.

Identity Cloaker, to the rescue.
Wonder how his US based nephew gets around it?

I understand their (potential) copyright concerns, but you'd think they'd want to globally share a story celebrating the guys life.

m4Malious, no, I already use cloaker, proxying through a Dublin server and still get the same messages with only that one video, using Firefox or Chrome. Not sure what the problem is.

Well, the problem is that RTE got clever and blacklisted the server ips's that Identity Cloaker has.

I meant it more as a comment on the situation, rather than a technical solution (e.g. proxy, VPN, or
- not for the faint hearted - a custom HIP protocol in your tcp/ip stack to eliminate addresses in the
application and transport layers to decouple the transport layer from the internetworking layer.....).

If it had worked, great - easier of course is to just convince someone to screen record it and post to youtube....
