Bliain an tSneachta Mhóir on TG4.
On January 19th, 1947 Ireland was struck by a weather phenomenon which covered the country in Snow and Ice for 2 months.
The weather brought temperatures of -14 centigrade causing blizzards and snow drifts of 12-20 feet.
Bliain an tSneachta Mhóir is a beautiful half hour documentary which looks back at the Arctic freeze of 1947. Through interviews with people who remember this time when they were young children and some archive footage and photographs we bring you back to 1947 and tell the story of Ireland’s harshest winter which brought the country to a standstill.
The documentary is directed by Colm Bairéad and Produced by Eileen Seoighe of Abú Media.
