Ros na Rún is renowned for the high quality of its dramatic scripts and has the unique ability to portray the realities of contemporary Gaeltacht and rural living with humour and intelligence. Its realistic storylines are not afraid to tackle the challenging social issues of our times, dealing with themes of family, love, society, secrets, and deceit. The soap has screened numerous ground-breaking moments on Irish TV over the last 20 years, including the first ever gay kiss shown on screen in Ireland back in 1996. Ros na Rún is a typical West of Ireland village. The village's name has more than one meaning, it can be translated into English as 'Headland of the Secrets', and as 'Headland of the Sweethearts' so it is aptly named. It broadcasts for 35 weeks of the year and total weekly viewership figure currently stands at 150,000. Filmed in the heart of the Connemara Gaeltacht in an Spidéal, Co na Gaillimhe, it broadcasts twice weekly on TG4, Tuesday's and Thursday's at 8.30pm with an ...

*Is maith liom Ros na Run*
15 August 2006 | by starrleaf-dreamerSee all my reviews

Started watching it for the Gaeilge during my Leaving Cert. Got hooked. Love it now. It's more than a cut above anything else in the soap world and it's the only one I'd give my time to. Can't wait for next season! The acting is really decent compared to...well pretty much anything on TV these days...and it gives a break from those unending reality shows. My only complaint is that the communication between the many scriptwriters doesn't always seem to be consistent...on occasion there's an episode filled with one person's story, a cliffhanger and then you hear nothing more about them for several weeks! But hey nothing's perfect and there's definitely more right than wrong with this Irish soap. While I'm on the topic of Ireland, the location can't be faulted - Spiddal, Co. Galway is one of Ireland's most beautiful places and the West of Ireland atmosphere is displayed in the programme. Whether you start watching to learn some Gaeilge, improve the Irish you've got or just cause there's nothing else on, I guarantee you'll be glad you flicked to TG4/WYBE.
