Homes By The Water Theme of New TG4 Series

13th January 2024
TG4's 'Tithe Cois Uisce' is presented by Síle Nic Chonaonaigh

“Views of the sea affect our soul”, and Irish people are drawn to coastal houses in spite of climate change factors, a new TG4 maritime television series finds.

'Tithe Cois Uisce' is an eight-part series that follows on from the popular "Tithe Cois Farraige' series.

Starting next Wednesday, January 17th, presenter Síle Nic Chonaonaigh will visit a different location to meet those who have built houses by the water.

In the first episode, Nic Chonaonaigh visits artist Donnacha Quilty on the outskirts of Galway city, Tracey Jeffrey of Tracey's Farmhouse Kitchen in Newtownards, Co Down and masseuse Veronica Lydon in Letterard, Co. Galway. All three people explain how they use the water as inspiration for their craft.

Coastal, island and inland locations are covered in the series, which begins on TG4 on Wednesday January 17th at 8.30pm and on the TG4 Player. Team
