Kells for TV show

 Kells will feature on a new TV show in the autumn, which will feature an original song written to celebrate the town, its people, heritage and traditions.
The north Meath town has been chosen as one of the towns to feature in the next series of ‘Spillane - An Fánaí’ on TV4.
The programme will be recorded in the town and surrounding areas in May/June.
Singer/wongwriter, John Spillane, and a television crew will stay in Kells for a few days in May/June, during which he’ll get to know the local history, traditions, cultures and landmarks, as well as the local people.
This will culminate in him writing an original song based on his experiences there, that will feature at the end of the show.
Kells Town Council cathaoirleach, Oliver Sweeney points out that it is a marvellous opportunity to showcase the town and surrounding areas, including the wonderful work that’s been completed there in recent years.
It is also an opportunity for local businesses and entertainers too, especially those that might like to sing along!
A member of the production company’s research team will visit Kells in the coming weeks, so if you have any ideas or suggestions to make, they will be warmly received.
Given that the show is being commissioned for broadcast on TG4 there’ll be a particular, though not exclusive, need for participants that have a cúpla focal.
