Niamh Ní Féineadh on transition and trans healthcare



Featured on Seal le Daithí


Niamh Ní Féineadh, a member of Trans Healthcare Action, appeared on TG4’s flagship talkshow Seal le Daithí on Thursday 28 September. As the first ever trans woman on the show, Niamh described her experiences growing up in Ireland in the 1980s, and how she came to the decision to transition over lockdown. Over the course of the interview, she shared some of her joy in transition, but also called out how being trans is a simple fact of every day life for her—people are much more likely to notice her speaking Irish to her kids than the fact that she’s trans. Niamh ends the interview by describing the abysmal state of trans healthcare in Ireland and explaining that it must improve.


Ba aoi í Niamh Ní Féineadh, ball Gníomh ar son Cúram Sláinte Trasinscnigh, ar an Seó Comhrá mór ar TG4, Seal le Dáithí. Mar an chead bean tras ar an clár, rinne sí cur síos ar a tógadh sna 1980s, agus conas a rinne sí an cinneadh athrú i rith an dianghlasáil. Le linn an t-agallamh, roinn sí an ríméad a bhainnean lena athrú, ach léirigh sí gur gnáth rud é bheith tras ina saol—tugann daoine faoi deara go bhfuil sí ag caint Gaeilge lena páistí i bhfad níos minice ná tugann siad deara gur duine tras í. Chuir sí críoch leis an t-agallamh le cur síos ar an drochbhaill atá ann maidir le cúram sláilte do dhaoine tras in Éirinn.
