Delighted to announce that 2 Abú Media projects have been nominated for the upcoming IFTA Gala TV Awards to be held in the Doublletree by Hilton in Dublin on October 7th. Crainn na hEireann (The Trees of Ireland) has been nominated in teh Best Factual Series category and An Klondike has been nominated for the Special Irish Language category.
Crainn na hEireann was broadcast earlier this year on TG4 and presented by Manchan Magan, directed by Luke mc Manus and produced by Abú Media's Brid Seoighe. "We put so much into making this series a success and to get the nomination is a credit to the entire team who worked on it. We are absolutely thrilled and massive thanks to TG4 who believed in this mad idea" says Brid.
An Klondike gets the nod in the Special Irish Language category against very stiff opposition. Pierce Boyce adds "We won a few with An Klondike at the IFTA FIlm and Drama awards earlier this year so we are very happy with that. To pick up the Special Irish Language award would mean an awful lot to the team but it's a tough ask against what's in against us."
