Posted in Connect on March 29, 2017.

The beautiful Village Inn in Partry is the venue for a new internet TV series focusing on Mayo people and events – and all eight programmes will be broadcast live worldwide.

Friday Night Mayo is the latest internet TV innovation from Mayo-based company, who shot to international prominence when broadcasting Westport’s recent AIB All-Ireland intermediate football final triumph to an audience of 85,000 people.

The programme will feature guests, music, song, dance and giveaways and will run every Friday from April 7 until May 26, starting at 10.30pm and finishing at 12 midnight.

“Friday Night Live will be broadcast live from The Village Inn in front of a studio audience,” said presenter Liam Horan, who, along with Anthony Moran, is co-founder of

“Although we have become known for our broadcasting of sports events, we also have a big interest in the worlds of community, culture and enterprise, and Friday Night Live aims to appeal to a broad audience.

“It will be broadcast live from 10.30pm to 12 midnight, and will also be archived on our platform within a few hours for anyone who wants to watch it back. This should appeal to people in other time zones.

“Friday Night Mayo will cater to people who live in Mayo, are from Mayo, have a family connection with Mayo –or who simply have a love for the county.

“We are committed to staging eight shows and we plan to have some great guests, a lot of enjoyment and some surprises along the way”.

The guest list for the first show will be announced shortly. Sponsorship and advertising opportunities exist and can be pursued by contacting, +353 94 95 42965 / +353 87 9185 867.

“We are delighted to host Friday Night Mayo – it is a very quirky idea, and we know how well have carried out major national broadcasts already this year, so we are certain it will be a good night for those attending and the internet TV audience,” said Oliver Kelleher, Proprietor, The Village Inn.
