‘Dundara Television & Media are delighted to partner with Guaranteed Irish and TG4 for this exciting new series. Like many people, I grew up associating the famous Guaranteed Irish symbol with quality Irish products and services. We are a tight team here at Dundara and everybody is on the same wavelength creatively so “Guaranteed Irish” has been a fantastic series to create. The queen of Irish broadcasting Mary Kennedy is, as we have come to expect, warm, genuine, and engaging making her the perfect presenter for the series. When the idea was pitched to us initially, she instantly came to mind as the ideal choice and her consummate professionalism and genuine interest shines throughout,’ said Enda Grace Producer / Director, Dundara Television & Media.

‘There are incredible businesses in this country working very hard through these difficult uncertain times. What shone through for me while chatting to each of our guests was their sheer passion and resilience. I think the viewer will find the series informative and entertaining and discover a real warmth to the business leaders we shine a light on. We don’t get to go behind the scenes of these successful companies very often and each individual story is an eye opener. I’m very excited to have the opportunity to present this new series for TG4. Working with the channel, producer Enda Grace and his team at Dundara Television & Media alongside Guaranteed Irish has been wonderful, and I hope the viewer enjoys watching the series as much as I enjoyed making it,’ said Mary Kennedy Presenter.
