Irial Mac Murchú, owner of Nemeton in the Ring Gaeltacht, spoke to writer Catherine Foley for her One of Our Own series.

In this episode, he tells Catherine all about the company he set up in the early 1990s to service the television industry.

Today with a workforce of 50, Nemeton continues to push boundaries and compete at international level.

This series is produced and edited by RoseAnn Foley, Catherine's sister, and it was made with funding from the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland with the Television Licence Fee.


RoseAnn says her aim was to shed light on the idea of what makes a true Waterford person. “They are all fascinating people,” she says. “I find their stories truly inspirational. I loved working on this series. And there’s a lovely vibe going through the series as Catherine and myself are old friends with a number of the guests. And then we met some of the others and we felt we had known them all along. It was a really enjoyable project.”
