Nemeton Spotlight Feature: Cathal O’Hare
This week in our Spotlight Feature series we chat to one of our most experienced producers Cathal O’Hare.
I am one of the Producers in Nemeton. Normally we are all working on an OB over the weekend so Monday is a day off for most of us. So the week starts on a Tuesday morning with a production meeting where the weekend’s programmes are discussed and dissected and then the upcoming programmes will be organised. There is a great team here and we all help each other with ideas for inserts and graphics so there is always plenty of brainstorming.
Wednesday would be a day for getting the Ord Reatha (Running Order) together and then…
Nemeton Spotlight Feature: Michael Rice
This week in our Spotlight Series we hear from an 8 time All-Ireland winner with Kilkenny.. our GAA BEO analyst and co-commentator, Michael Rice.
Thosaigh mé ag obair le Nemeton ar GAA BEO i rith an tSamhraidh 2016. Bhí mo chéad chluiche ar siúl i bPáirc Uí Nualláin. Ar ndóigh, bhí mé neirbhíseach ach fuair mé cabhair iontach ó gach daoine a bhí ag obair ar an lá.
I started working with Nemeton on GAA BEO during the summer of 2016. My first match was in Nowlan Park. Of course I was nervous but everyone I was working with on the day really helped me.
De ghnáth, caithfidh mé a bheith ag an bpáirc dhá uair a…

According to Nemeton TV CEO Irial Mac Murchú, the programme was born out of conversations with Teilifís na Gaeilge at the time where we were trying to impress upon them that they had to have a sport on the new channel and trying to figure out what we could do differently.
We sent someone to Barcelona every weekend for the first 6-8 weeks to collect tapes and bring them back to the studio.
Later, we erected Satellite…
Nemeton Spotlight Feature: Marcus Ó Buachalla
This week in our Spotlight Series we hear from GAA BEO commentator and presenter Marcus Ó Buachalla.
I first started working as a presenter with Setanta Sports back in 2006. I was working as a trainee solicitor at the time and I had been doing some local media work with Raidió na Life in Dublin presenting an Irish language weekly sports show with John Barker called An Fheadóg Dheireannach and I was asked would I be interested in doing some pieces with Setanta Sports.
The approach was from Maurice Reidy, a legend of the broadcasting world in RTÉ initially and he would have worked on many a big GAA game and event for RTÉ. He…

Táim ag obair le Nemeton le 7 bhliain anois tar éis cúrsa Ard Diplóma i Léiriú Teilifíse a chríochnú i 2015. Bhí mé ar bís chun dul le Léiriú Teilifíse mar shlí bheatha.
