Irish television comedy programme 1996 ~ CU Burn ~ Portion three of 3

CU Burn ~ Portion three of three CU Burn is an Irish language television comedy broadcast on the Irish language television channel TG4. It told the tales of the County Donegal undertakers Charlie and Vincie Burn who ran a turf-fueled crematorium. They had been rivalled by an additional group of much more expert undertakers led by Frank Doyle. The show revolved around the hapless Charlie Burn (the CU Burn of the title) whose misendeavours usually led to considerably chaos even though his long-suffering brother Vincie Burn requested a quiet life. CU Burn was written and directed by Niall Mac Eamharcaigh[1] and was first broadcast in 1996. The series was filmed entirely in the Donegal Gaeltacht location and was one of the initial home-produced Tv series to be broadcast on the fledgling TG4.
