ABOUT

Following on from the success of the first four seasons, the 5th season of Opry an Iúir returns to our screens this year, funded by TG4 and the Irish Language Broadcast Fund.

Presented by the King of Country Music, Daniel O’Donnell, who will be joined by Lynette Fay, some of the biggest stars of country music, past and present, will feature across the four-night extravaganza, taking place in Newry Town Hall for broadcast in late September on TG4.

Series 5 showcases some very special guests including Trudi Lalor, The Three Amigos, T.R. Dallas, Derek Ryan, The High Kings, Clíona Hagan together with Michael English, and a very special ‘Opry with the Stars’ episode!

Each week the featured artist will perform a selection of their greatest hits, as well as an Irish-language duet with a well-known traditional singer, promising an evening of unmissable music. In each episode, Daniel will also duet with the featured country artist and perform some of his own best-loved hits ‘as Gaeilge’.

Highlights of previous seasons of Opry an Iúir included:

Season 4: Brendan Shine, Dominic Kirwan, Mike Denver, Louise Morrissey, Charlie Landsborough, Jim Devine and Johnny Brady were the special guests in this series.
