Seachtain na Gaeilge is the biggest annual Irish language festival in the world and for 2017 Irish actor Art Parkinson who plays Rickon Stark in the hit HBO TV show Game of Thrones is one of their ambassadors.

We catch up with Art and chat about his love for the Irish language, talk about THAT scene from Season 6 of Game of Thrones, the benefits of having an Irish language tutor on set, playing the lead in Kubo and the Two Strings - an Oscar nominated and BAFTA winning animated film and ... preparing for the Junior Cert exams!

And so much more!
