The Galway Eye Videos

Just got our YouTube channel up and running this afternoon – HUP!

The animation of Blackrock Tower in Salthill will introduce all Galway Eye videos in the future 🙂 We designed and produced the sequence ourselves with a backing excerpt from a stunning piece called Caoineadh Cu Chulainn by Davy Spillane!

Frankie Glavin will be getting us off the mark by interviewing well-known Galway-based musician Pa O’Riada in the next few weeks. We are hoping Pa will also agree to grace us with a live performance of one of his songs at the end of the video!
