Here’s a glimpse into what a TV crew does during an outside broadcast for live sport:

In the Nemeton Spotlight Feature series, we hear from Sorcha Furlong, an All-Ireland medallist with Dublin in 2010, who works with us as an analyst on Peil na mBan BEO on TG4.
Thosaigh mé ag obair ar GAA BEO i 2012. Fuair mé gortú ag deireadh an tséasúir i 2011 agus tháinig foireann Nemeton chugam chun fáil amach an raibh suim agam a bheith i m’anailísí leo.
I started working with GAA BEO in 2012. I had torn my cruciate at the end of the 2011 season and I was approached about doing some analysis. I’ve loved working on all of the games, even more so since I’ve retired from playing, as it’s helped me to stay connected to…

Nemeton Spotlight Feature: Michelle Ryan
This week in our Nemeton Spotlight Feature series we hear from Michelle Ryan who works with us as an analyst on Peil na mBan BEO on TG4. Michelle plays football with Waterford club Ballymacarbry who are current Munster Senior ladies football champions.
My first time working with Nemeton was a round 3 double-header during the 2019 championship in O’Connor Park in Tullamore. I was a sideline analyst for the Mayo vs Donegal match and on co-commentary for Cork vs Armagh. I had no previous experience doing either of these live on TV and my most vivid memory is the overwhelming feeling of being out of my depth during the production…
Nemeton Spotlight Feature: Aoife O’Connor
This week in our Spotlight Feature series we hear from our GAA BEO analyst and three-time All-Ireland champion with Wexford Camogie, Aoife O’Connor.
Thosaigh mé ag obair le GAA BEO 5 years ago (I think!). I had done some work prior to that on camogie with TG4 and I had also been on Seo Spóirt. But the real stuif started with GAA BEO! 5 bliana den scoth!
Braitheann sé agus athraíonn sé. A typical day will be dictated by the start time of the game and time needed to travel to the venue. We are usually at the grounds a few hours beforehand so uaireanta caithfear éirí go luath go háirithe de bharr hair and make-up! You have…
