Galway Daily television Fiachna O Braonáin debuts as new Ros na Rún character Luke

Ros na Rún and Hothouse Flowers fans got a treat last night as the renowned Irish musician and radio presenter Fiachna Ó Braonáin was revealed as the charming new character Luke.

The handsome stranger as Luke Ó Ríordáin labelled in the fictional Gaeltacht village, turned heads on arrival and not least of all with bubbly and friendly Bobbi Lee.

A friend of Niall’s visiting him in Connemara, introducing Luke to Bobbi Lee is a must for Niall. She seems a little captivated by her partner’s tall, dark, chatty friend.

Has Niall anything to be worried about over New Year and is there more to Luke’s visit than catching up with an old friend? 

Fiachna Ó Braonáin is a  renowned musician, with the internationally renowned Hothouse Flowers and in more recent years presents RTE Radio One’s nightly music show Late Date.

A passionate gaeilgeoir who loves Irish arts and culture, he is now  also presenting an Seomra Glas on RTE’s Raidio na Gaeltachta.

Fiachna says that he is delighted to be playing Luke on Ros na Rún, calling him a “fun character, charming, yet hidden”.

“It’s brilliant to be part of such a progressive and professional cast and crew who’re delivering excellent  Irish language TV drama from a wonderful set in Spiddal in the Connemara Gaeltacht, a place which is very close to my heart.”

Ros na Rún is now in its milestone 25th season on TG4, broadcasting Ireland’s premiere Irish Language drama twice a week.

Catch all the latest drama in Ros na Rún on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:30pm, with a catch-up double feature on Sundays at 7:30pm.
