ROS Na Rún, TG4’s Irish language drama, is looking for budding Irish language actors to join their cast and follow in the footsteps of well-known Donegal actors such as Gavin Ó Fearraigh, Niall Mac Eachmharcaigh and Bridín Ní Mhaoldomhnaigh.

If you are an Irish speaker and have a burning ambition to act, then now is your chance to join the acting family of one of Ireland’s most popular drama series.
The team behind Ros na Rún are on the lookout for both male and female actors to stir things up in the rural village, with some dramatic storylines.


Auditions will be held on the set of Ros na Rún in Spiddal, Co Galway. on Monday 14th and Tuesday 15th April. Fluent Irish is essential for all roles.
Actors will take to the same set that saw both musician Nathan Carter and actor Stephen Fry make cameo appearances and that has become home to many familiar faces – indeed viewers couldn’t imagine Ros na Rún without Seamus, one of the characters who has been with the soap for 18 years.

With dramatic and exciting storylines, actors are guaranteed to have their skills challenged and further developed. During its history the soap screened the first gay kiss shown on Irish television, as well as drama including teenage pregnancy, murder, steroid addiction, paternity tests, lustful affairs and seduction!
