Gráinne Seoige will be returning to our TV screens as the face of a brand new documentary.
She will be leading the charge to introduce a menopause policy in Ireland. She is kicking things off with her TG4 documentary which focuses on the change.
The show, Meanapás: Meon Nua wants to raise awareness around the change of life and push for a campaign for a national menopause policy.
During the Q&A of TG4 autumn schedule launch, Gráinne said society had become obsessed with anything that centres around “keeping us young”.
“That’s a societal thing. Anything we are obsessed with is youth found. It is about being as young as you can for as long as you can so it is no wonder that women don’t actually want to think about the fact that menopause is creeping up but actually the more prepared you are, the better the transition will be,” she explained.
Comedian Deirdre O’Kane also features in the documentary.
The broadcaster, who moved back to Ireland after two years in South Africa, admitted that she is excited to work with TG4 for her upcoming documentary about the vital part of life.
Her programme was one of three female-led documentaries that were unveiled at TG4’s autumn season launch on Monday. Elsewhere on the station Mary Kennedy and Síomha Ní Ruairc will explore womanhood and the related effects on women at different stages of life.
