Delight in Abú because on Wednesday in Newry at the Celtic Media Festival we won the Best Factual Series for Mobs Mhericea. Up against Mobs was CSI : Corks Bloody Secret from RTE, Stephen Fry's "Last Chance to See" for BBC Wales, The Ian Brady Story (Moors Murderer) from BBC Wales and Jonathan Meade from BBC Alba.
Bríd Seoighe who received the award along with Eileen and Pierce says, "It was a really competitive category. We were up against the best factual series from Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Brittany so to win this is a great achievement. And we are so grateful to all the cast and especially the Abú crew who make all our projects so memorable. Micheal O'Meallaigh the Commissioning Executive from TG4 also deserves special mention for his foresight in commissioning the series."
"it was great to win the award as a reward for telling great stories and the first to congratulate us was Pól O'Gallachóir (TG4), closely followed by Padraic O'Ciadhra (TG4), Cathal Goan (RTE) and Antaine O'Donghaile (BBC NI).
