Arna thuiscint dóibh go bhfuil an tseansibhialtacht Ghaelach lena mbainidís imithe i léig, féachann na daoine le saíocht an phobail a chaomhnú nuair a thuigtear dóibh go mb’fhéidir go n-éireodh leo oidhreacht an bhaile a shábháil, fiú mura n-éiríonn leo an baile féin a thabhairt slán. Tá Anseo i Lár an Ghleanna le feiceáil anois ar Sheinnteoir TG4.
