St Patrick's Day gift to the Irish in Britain
There was a brief attempt to provide Irish television to the 850,000 Irish-born people in Britain during the 1990s, with Tara TV, run by those who now make a fortune with Setanta. But it is good news that a permanent service is now to be provided, blending RTE 1 and RTE 2 programmes, with an announcement expected today.
