Louise Cantillon, from Limerick, presents Today FM’s flagship lunchtime show, hosts TG4’s Junior Eurovision and has a successful bilingual podcast called ‘HOW TO GAEL’.  “I’m so excited to be back on the road with the buchaillí for Téacs Taistil series 2. I feel like this is going to be the biggest and best to date. We went to some incredible destinations. Discovering new cities and doing it through a series of tasks was great fun. I tried my hand at making gladiator sandals in Athens and got the opportunity to see the epic Northern lights out at sea in Reykjavik. We had a lot of ‘laugh out loud’ moments. Not sure if you’ll be laughing with us or at us, but it doesn’t matter, I’m just excited to be ar ais arís.”

Farmer, teacher and presenter, Séaghan Ó Súilleabháin, from Kerry has many strings to his bow. Séaghan is very active on Tiktok and Instagram where his life on the farm in Kerry has attracted worldwide attention. Séaghan had travelled very little before the first series of Téacs Taistil, but would now consider himself an expert. “I had no travel experience prior to Téacs Taistil series 1. I admit I was a bit of a rookie.

“In series 2 we really stepped it up another gear. We were as competitive as ever when it came to the tasks and having a wide mix of skills certainly came in handy – from Waltzing in Vienna to Sheep Farming in Reykjavik. Series 2 had no shortage of challenging moments but we always managed to pull through and have the craic while doing it! A journey to remember le mo bheirt chairde iontacha, can’t wait for everyone to see it! “

Proinsias Ó Coinn from South Armagh is a podcaster, journalist and TV presenter and passionate world traveller. “I didn’t think we could top the places we visited in series 1 but in this series of Téacs Taistil, we went to some of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. From a Sunset Dinner in the Sky in Athens to the Rolling Vineyards of Sicily, I can’t wait for people to see what we got up to. The challenges are wilder, we are as competitive as ever and we’ve become even closer friends. Well sometimes!”
