Céad Seans, an exciting array of imaginative short dramas and documentaries from the Higher Diploma in Television and Media Production is now featuring on the TG4 Player.
Based at Nemeton TV, one of Ireland’s leading production companies in Gaeltacht na nDéise, the widely regarded course is accredited by South East Technological University (SETU) and supported by Údarás na Gaeltachta.
Amongst the many award-winning documentaries and dramas is County Waterford filmmaker and photographer John Foley’s intriguing ‘Díoltas’. The film is based on the brutal kidnapping, imprisonment and eventual execution of RIC District Inspector Gilbert Potter by the IRA in 1921 during the War of Independence.

It features masterful carriage driver Paddy Hanley and rare archival material.
