Éadaí SOS

3rd September 2021
Caoimhe Ní Chathail and Proinsias Ó Coinn are on a mission to get us thinking differently about our wardrobes.

Every year millions of tonnes of clothing are burned or dumped in landfill, yet for many of us our fast fashion addiction continues.
Éadaí SOS is a new, four-part series made by Waddell Media with funding from Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund. Across the four episodes, shopping-obsessed fashionistas are challenged to alter their habits and embrace more eco-friendly ways of indulging their passion for the latest trends.

Each week, Caoimhe visits a lover of fast fashion, takes everything in their wardrobe away in a van – bar 10 items of clothing – and imposes a shopping ban for two weeks.
While Proinsias carries out an audit revealing just how little each person knows about their own clothes (and how many items they have) and how infrequently they wear a lot of outfits, over the course of the fortnight, Caoimhe sets about showing the shopaholics ways they can change their habits, re-purpose and recycle items and embrace sustainable fashion without sacrificing individual style.

In episode one, Caoimhe and Proinsias meet Donegal student Mollaí Ní Mhiacháin, who spends 80% of her income on clothes, and introduce her to the fashion treasure troves that are charity shops.
Episode two sees primary school teacher Corey Hanna from Derry reveal that she needs two rooms to house her clothing collection and feels so guilty about her shopping obsession that she hides her purchases from her mum.

Episode three features Belfast mum-of-two, Aoife Ní Mhuireagáin, who is obsessed with the latest trends not only for herself, but also for her young son and daughter.
And in episode four, influencer Chris Murphy from Meath, doesn’t recognise gender when it comes to clothes and loves to express himself through creative outfits. But he’s addicted to budget fast-fashion and has never really considered the impact of his choices on the environment.

With Caoimhe and Proinsias’ help, can the four shopaholics change their habits?
Éadaí SOS begins on Monday 6 September at 10pm on BBC Two Northern Ireland and on iPlayer.
