  • "Wrecking the Rising" received a great review in The Herald today. See below for a snippet: "Despite the fantastical concept, Wrecking The Rising stays just the right side of all-out irreverence. Any budgetary constraints are overcome by Phelan's irresistibly clever and funny script (there's a great recurring gag about Joe Duffy). The three stars are marvellous too, creating characters that are immediately warm, likeable and believable. Once again TG4 has trumped the big guys and worked miracles on the paltry €6.71 it receives from every licence fee."

  • Tile Films "Paramedics" was given a great review by Liam Fay of the Sunday Times. See below for a snippet of wrote: "Tile Films has drawn together an impressively diverse wealth of stories that speak volumes about contemporary Irish society. Encompassing everything from sports-related injuries to heroin overdoses, a day in the life of an ambulance staffer proovides an eloquent running commentary about the way we live now. Like the paramedics, the series is calm, purposeful and sharp-eyed. There's no shape-throwing or sensationalism, no attempt to use patients as tear-jerking props. " Don't miss the next episode of "Paramedics" this Thursday at 9pm on TV3

Experts, such as Celtic scholar Patrick McCafferty, explain how ancient Irish people changed from worshipping gods in the earth to gods in the sky - and eventually this helped bishops like St Patrick convert them to the new Christian Church.
