One of TG4’s most popular series is a deceptively simple format – a conversation between the host, the award-winning broadcaster Máirtín Tom Sheáinín, and his weekly guest. His particular talent is to put his guest completely at ease - whether the person is a national figure or someone who has lived life far away from the headlines, all are happy to share their innermost feelings or experiences in a quiet conversation with Máirtín.
Among this year’s guests are former Taoiseach Brian Cowen, veteran film-maker Bob Quinn, former leading trade-unionist Des Geraghty, former Minister Mary Hanafin, the current Catholic Bishop of Achonry - Dr Breandán Ó Ceallaigh and Michael McCann, President of Saint Vincent de Paul in Galway.
Máire Uí Fhearráin from Conamara is this week’s guest on Comhrá. Máire worked for nuns in Dublin before working in Bray. She returned to Carna then and she talks about life in Carna.
