Series 2

Following a successful series last year, Turas Bóthair is back.  This is the show that reveals what people really talk about in their cars.

Once again we rig small cameras in dozens of cars across Ireland, allowing us to eavesdrop on real conversations as they happen. Expect moments of joy and sadness, comedy and tragedy, love and loss, friendship and romance, regret and reflection, despair and hope as drivers and passengers share their personal stories and views on love, relationships, sex, technology, drugs, illness, organ donation, the GAA, aliens, ghosts, women’s rights and much, much more.

Among the characters we meet are housemates Aoife & Méabh in Belfast, na Gaeil Óga football players Dáithí and Eoin from Dublin, sisters  Eilín & Maureen in Kerry, schoolfriends Muiris and Gabriel from the Kingdom, and  Donegal school teachers Sally and Bríd.

The series provides hugely revealing insights into the Irish psyche, a unique slice of life normally hidden behind closed doors.

Turas Bóthair was filmed on location in Counties Dublin, Cork, Kerry, Galway, Donegal, Antrim and Down with support from NI Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund.
