A look back on series 1 of Béaloideas Beo – Despite all the technology and globalised media access, our daily lives in 21st century Ireland are still full of folk customs and beliefs, many of them centuries old – but most of us do not realise this.  This 13 part series of Béaloideas Beo continues its fascinating exploration of how these ancient superstitions developed and still influence us today.

Each programme takes a particular theme –  with a location report and then a discussion by a panel of experts. Presented by  award-winning TV reporter Seán Mac a’ tSíthigh.

Produced by Sibéal Teo
