The tiny village of Lisvernane in the beautiful Glen of Aherlow is just your  text votes away from winning An GTEAM, TG4’s reality TV show where non Gaeltacht communities prove that it is possible to revive an Gaeilge and win a prize of €40,000.

This competition began a year ago with more than 120 towns and villages attempting to become Ireland’s next Irish speaking town.  After a number of visits by cameras and judges, Lisvernane was chosen as one of 12 places to make it through to the televised rounds.

To get this far the community organised a festival “G-day”, plan and film a 45 second TV ad for the area and to produce a one hour live radio programme – all trí Gaelige. Now in the final Lisvernane is competing against Donabate Co. Dublin in the biggest challenge yet.  The little village is taking on the big town, and we need all YOUR votes.  Please spread the word around all your friends and family.  Is feidir linn mar ní neart le cur le chéile. 

Now to win Lisvernane need YOU to text TEAM L to 53305.  Voting costs 30c and lines close on Friday, March 16 at 5pm. For more information and to follow our activities, have a look on our Facebook page G_DAY i nGleann Eatharlai.
