Description

Oliver McGilloway present's McGilloway's Way, a programme which celebrates the dramatic and beautiful landscapes surrounding Ulster. 

This episode is set by Inishowen Mountain, Co. Donegal, where Derry City can be seen just a few miles away and to one side the River Foyle and to the other side, the Dark Mountains of Donegal. Behind McGilloway, sits Grianán of Aileach, "stone house of the sun and the palace of kings" a place of much legend and superstition. 

On a secluded beach, filled with shells, Mcgilloway discusses how these shells will - in a few centuries - make up the sand on this beach. Close by and under a beaming sun, meet a local who fishes for oysters with his own contraption and sells his product during the summer.

Notes

Oliver, or Olly McGilloway as he was widely known as, was the presenter of McGilloway's Way and was produced by Joe Mahon.  The series was unexpectedly cut short due to McGilloway's untimely death in 1994. The programme was relaunched as Lesser Spotted Ulster with Joe Mahon as presenter and continues to be broadcast today.
