We are Script Advisors for Ros na Rún!

Fitzsimons Redmond LLP were very excited to be contacted by a script researcher for TG4’s Ros na Rún, and asked to provide legal advices on a storyline. Ros na Rún is a long-running Irish language soap-opera, and was a part of the backdrop to many Irish childhoods! It is a real privilege for us to play a small part in the production of of this national cultural icon!

Bhí an fhoireann ag Fitzsimons Redmond LLP thar a bheith sásta nuair a rinne taighdeoir scripte Ros na Rún de chuid TG4 teagmháil linn, agus d’iarr sé orainn comhairle dlí a sholáthar ar scéal-líne. Is ceoldráma gallúnaí Gaeilge é Ros na Rún le fada an lá, agus ba chuid mhór de go leor óige na hÉireann é! Is mór an phribhléid dúinn páirt bheag a ghlacadh i dtáirgeadh an íocóin chultúrtha náisiúnta seo!

Happy St Patrick’s Day

We at Fitzsimons Redmond LLP, wish you a very happy St Patrick’s Day. See this little poem telling the story of Ireland’s patron saint.

In Ireland’s land, where legends bloom, There dwelled a saint, dispelling gloom. His name was Patrick, strong and true, A tale of faith, I share with you.

Saint Patrick, with his gentle might, Brought Christianity’s guiding light. He preached God’s love and peace so fair, To all who’d listen, everywhere.

Across the hills and valleys green, His words of hope were clearly seen. He taught of God, the Trinity, Father, Son, and Spirit three.

With shamrocks bright, he’d often speak, Of mysteries vast, yet not so bleak. In every town, he spread the word, Of Christ’s great love, so often heard.

So let’s recall Patrick’s grace, In every corner, every place. For he brought faith to Ireland’s shore, And love and peace forevermore.

His legacy, a shining light, Guiding us through day and night. In tales of old, his deeds will stay, Saint Patrick’s love, forever sway.
