The series explores the families, couples, and individuals’ motivation to move while shining a light on all the West of Ireland has to offer in terms of lifestyle, outdoor amenities, food culture, and quality of life.

“I think the series is very timely and I think it fits in very nicely with a different way of thinking about living and working which developed during the pandemic,” says Mary.

“I’m a Dub, but I just love rural Ireland. The series is in a bilingual format in Irish and English and I just relish having the opportunity to use my Irish, a language I love. I really enjoyed filming with Enda and the team and meeting such inspirational people who had made the move west. It’s a very genuine and lovely series.”

Moving West begins on TG4 on Thursday 23rd September at 9pm and is repeated every Monday at 7.30pm
