Boost for west’s creative sector as TG4 children’s channel gets green light

Thu, Sep 29, 2022

The creative and audiovisual sector in the west of Ireland got a significant boost last evening when TG4 were given the green light to develop a dedicated children’s TV channel entitled Cúla4.

The announcement was made by Arts Minister Catherine Martin who said it will reflect the diverse backgrounds of children living in all parts of Ireland, but particularly in Gaeltacht and Irish speaking communities.

The channel will seek to build on the TV station’s Cúla4 programming and will cost €3.2m, but will include a children’s news service, entertainment and education content, drama and Irish animation. The new station will also lead to new commissions for independent content creators and staff employed in the audio visual industry.
