BBC looking for GAA travellers

September 4th, 2012

BBC NI is currently researching a programme idea called Departure Diaries. This observational series will explore the issues facing those leaving the north of Ireland, for whatever reason, as they await their day of departure- from dismantling their current lives- buying the tickets and suitcases, tough decisions on what to bring and leave, planning goodbye parties- to the culmination at the airport and the final wave goodbye.

We will see the stories behind why they’ve made this choice, revealing the personal price people are paying in these tough times.

BBC are interested at first in speaking with those on the cusp of emigration from GAA community to understand better the issues and reasons behind their departure and the technicalities involved in making the move.

Anyone interested in taking part in the programme should contact: Clare Campbell, BBC Researcher on (028) 9033 8145 or
