Irish Folklore Adaptations to Air on TG4 from 24 April
19 Apr 2013 : By Kevin Cronin
'Bás Arto Leary' adapts folklore tale to contemporary setting.
TG4’s 'Scéal' development scheme has granted six Irish-speaking writers and directors the opportunity to each adapt a well-known story from Irish language literature or folklore into a contemporary setting with a series of half hour short films, set to screen this April and May.

‘Bás Arto Leary’ (The Death of Arto Leary) - written by Manchán Magan and directed by Luke McManus – kickstarts the series, following its win of the Imeall Audience Choice award at this year’s Dingle International Film Festival.

Other short films to be broadcast in the coming weeks are ‘Eoinín’ by Seán T. Ó Meallaigh and Tom O’Sullivan; ‘Pairtnéir’ by Ann Marie Flanagan and Colm Bairéad; ‘Síle’ by Séamus Moran and Cathal Ó Cuaig; ‘An Gadaí’ (The Thief) by Medb Johnstone and Niall Fallon; and ‘Dílseacht’ (Loyalty) by Marion Ní Loingsigh and Brendan Murray.

The selected stories were all adapted from Irish language short stories, poems, folklore and other work that represents the Irish tradition of storytelling.

Following the success of previous TG4 and BAI schemes 'Síol' and 'Údar', six submissions were chosen for the ‘Scéal’ to be guided though each step of the production under the tutelage of experts in both script writing and television directing.

‘Bás Arto Leary’ screens on TG4 this Wednesday 24 April.
