Hector Goes Fishing In First Of New Four-Part Series

3rd March 2014
Hector Goes Fishing In First Of New Four-Part Series

#OnTV - Hector Ó hEochagáin returns to our screens tonight with a new four-part series of Hector Goes, beginning with a spot of fishing in Ireland's coastal waters.

Getting his orange combi van back on the road, Hector explores the quirkier side of Irish life as he immerses himself with some of the men and women who fish our waters - and sometimes risk their lives to put food on our table - but who are mostly anonymous to the rest of us.

As he heads out to sea with some real characters, Hector will get down to the nitty-gritty of fishermen's lives and concerns, and even make contact with some of our European neighbours fishing near our waters.

Hector Goes Fishing is broadcast tonight (Monday 3 March) at 9.35pm on RTÉ One and will later be available to watch on demand via the RTÉ Player.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
