TG 4 Text or Teacs TG 4 is the teletext service for the Ireland's national Irish language television channel.  The station has always had teletext capability; however, in the early days, the system was used purely to alert viewers to the availability of an English language subtitle service on page 888.  However, from c. Autumn 1999, more use was made of the teletext system...and pages gradually began to appear.  The service was never really launched officially.
