First Broadcast.

Well, we had our first broadcast last night on national television. It was very exciting and I was surprisingly nervous. I guess it was the thought that thousand, tens of thousands, perhaps even hundreds of thousands of people all across Ireland were watching it. Before we've always been in the comfort and safety of a screening room or movie theatre, but this was something very different. I felt very proud I think.
I got a great kick out of it being shown after Entourage, which also happened to be the U2 episode! And with Johnny Drama sporting an Irish flag, almost as if to say Good Luck!
I've had a steady flow of congratulatory calls and texts from well wishers, so thanks to everyone. And thanks to all who watched. I hope you enjoyed it.

Emily's Song on RTE 2

Emily's Song is being broadcast tonight on RTE 2 here in Ireland at 11:15 pm. Sandwiched in between Entourage and 24, so we should get a good audience... so long as everyone's not up making tea after Entourage! We're excited, there would ahve been more notice, but no one told us and we only found out be accident! I don't know, whadaya gonna do?!
Anyway, it's great news, we're excited. Thanks to Derry and Hughie and everyone at Network Ireland Television for their work and thanks to RTE for buying it and giving us a great slot.
I hope you catch it. If you do leave a comment, let me know what you think, good or bad, don't be shy. Thanks and Enjoy.
