In 1972, RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta (Rna G) was set up to provide Irish-language radio services across the country.
Initial criticisms of the planned station came from journalist Kevin Myers who derided Tna G as a white elephant, calling it 'Telefís De Lorean', in a reference to the ill-fated De Lorean Motor Company.
TG4 was formerly known as ) and RTÉ Two in 1978; and was followed by TV3 in 1998.
The channel has 650,000 viewers who tune into the channel each day to view a broad programming policy.
