Cu Chulainn (Irish) is an Irish-language BBC schools TV series from the 1990s and 2000s, covering Irish for primary school pupils.


  • 5-part animated re-telling of the Ulster legend of CĂș Chulainn
  • broadcast only in Northern Ireland
  • an English-language version was also broadcast for schools in Northern Ireland, and a Scottish Gaelic version was broadcast for schools in Scotland in 1995 (the first Northern Ireland broadcasts may actually have been in 1995 as well, but the first that I can actually substantiate with dates and references were in spring 1996)
  • most recently broadcast for a general audience as a single 20-minute programme on Thursday 3rd September 2009 at 7:40pm on BBC2
