TG4’s Ros na Rún cast celebrated the wrap of their 21st season with a lively party last week, with plenty of Donegal faces in attendance.

Gaoth Dobhair’s Niall Mac Eachmharcaigh, Brídín Ní Mhaoldomhnaigh, Gort an Choirce’s Máirín Dé Buitléir and newcomer to the soap Falcarragh actor Pól Penrose were among the revellers at The Connemara Coast Hotel, Galway on Friday last.

Legendary Gaoth Dobhair actor Niall who plays John Joe joked that the Donegal actors are lovingly referred to as the ‘Japanese Knotweed’ invaders by the Connemara crew on set!

While the show will continue to broadcast on TG4 until June 16th, actors and crew let their hair down and celebrated completing their milestone 21st season of filming in true Connemara style.

Writers, directors, producers and camera crew mingled with actors while one half of the Ros na Rún 6, the original cast members on the show since the very beginning, Máire Éilis Ní Fhlatharta and Fionnuala Ní Fhlatharta danced with Ros na Rún’s infamous publican Tadhg Ó Direáin, played by Macdara Ó Fatharta.
