Starting this week on TG4 on Wednesday at 10.30pm and Friday at 9.50pm and on BBC 2 NI at 10pm with the Rock 'n Roll Country King Declan Nerney and the wonderful Aoife Scott!


We are delighted to announce, in conjunction with TG4, BBC NI and An Ciste Craoltóireachta Gaeilge (The Irish Language Broadcasting Fund) the third season of Opry an Iúir.

Following on from the success of the first two seasons in Newry's Town Hall, the third series of Opry an Iúir returns this year bigger and better than before. The King of Country music - Daniel O’Donnell is joined again by Marc Roberts and Lynette Fay as they meet and greet some of the biggest stars in country music here in Ireland.

From rising stars such as Gerry Guthrie and John McNicholl to the greatest acts in the business, Philomena Begley, Brendan Quinn and Susan McCann to favorites Nathan Carter, Patrick Feeney, Michael English, Lisa McHugh and Mary Duff, the show has it all.  Marc Roberts gives each star a helping hand as they prepare to perform a one off duet in Irish with a special guest. Back stage, Lynette Fay chats with ‘superfans’ and celebrity fans of each artist.

Recorded in front of a live audience, mixing archive, testimonials from fans and chat, the stars perform country favourites.  Along with great performances we get rare glimpses into the home lives of our stars:  From Declan Nerney showing off his collection of Vintage Tractors to Nathan Carter taking us out for a spin on his speed boat!

 

 

 

Opry an Iúir brings the essence of Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry to Newry.
