TG4 has confirmed to Eurovoix.com today that they are interested in the Junior Eurovision Contest. In response to Ireland being named as being present and interested at a Junior Eurovision meeting last week, we contacted TG4 to ask them about their interest in Junior Eurovision. We were told that:
While TG4 was not at the meeting in question, we did indicate an interest in this event
The Deputy CEO of TG4, Pádhraic Ó Ciardha went on to say that however:
I am not sure how much thought we’ve given it since then
TG4 are the Irish language broadcaster in Ireland, they are a registered EBU member so are eligible to take part in EBU events is RTE are not taking part. RTE confirmed to us last week that they do not have an interest in Junior Eurovision.
