Ireland – Dig it!

Calling 5th and 6th class students!

Fran McNulty of Mind the Gap films has been in touch to ask us to let you know about Ireland – Dig It! which is a brand new RTÉ TV series where a team of three 5th/6th class primary school students from your school have the chance to take part in an exciting and energetic archaeology adventure TV show!

They’ll need to use all their knowledge of local and national history and archaeology to win a place in our grand final with the chance to win a unique school trip for their entire class!

You can get an application form and more information on the website,, or from Fran (

You’ll need a secret password to complete your team’s entry. To find this password your class will need to don their archaeologists’ hats and unearth some historical facts and clues! They can do this by following the instructions on the website and by watching The Den during the Easter holidays.

When choosing the team, they suggest you pick those who have a real interest in archaeology and local history, are bubbly, outgoing and confident, with a sense of adventure and a curiosity for the unknown! They must be in 5th or 6th class and aged between 9 and 13 on August 31st 2010.

Send your applications as soon as you have the secret password – but no later than April 30th2010.

Send your applications to:

Ireland – Dig It!, Mind The Gap Films, 6 Wilton Place, Dublin 2

Please note that an application does not guarantee a place in the programme.
