South Park comes to TG4…

There’s a bit of controversy around TG4‘s decision to slot an Irish language version of South Park in the early evening slot. Leascheannasai Padhraic O’ Ciardha:

“It’s an extremely popular and globally recognised animated series with a twist,. We’re very happy to have got the Irish language rights for it and this allows us to devise our own script, without compromising the integrity of the programme.”

So far, he claims, there have been no complaints from the public. It’s broadcast on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 6.30, just before the evening news.
