Darragh forecasts the weather for TG4

Darragh Ó Caoimh from Kanturk has been named as a new presenter of the weather forecast on TG4 television. A former co-presenter of the Junior Eurovision song com-petition on TG4, Darragh got his grá for the Irish language from his grandmother Maureen Conran, and an interest in local history. He graduated in 2022 from UCC with a degree in Law and Irish and was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to teach Irish at the University of Montana for the 2022/2023 academic year. Following his return from the Rocky Mountains, he began a Masters in Modern Irish at UCD where he is currently studying. A keen-student of Irish literature, Darragh also writes poetry. His work has won various prizes and has featured in Comhar and Aneas, as well as on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta and BBC Radio Ulster. His hobbies include running, hiking, hurling, and choral singing.
Darragh says, “I hope I can add to the wonderful service TG4 already provides, and am looking forward to working with everyone in Baile na hAbhann, all of whom have been so welcoming and friendly to me since I’ve started. Here’s hoping for a heatwave this summer; I don’t want to be the bearer of too much bad news!”
