Description

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

This episode is set during the depths of winter when snow is laying on the ground and the seas are rough. McGilloway chats about the changes in the weather compared to past winters and even the waves seem "to be more furious in recent times" and this is due to global warming "where there is more carbon dioxide gasses in the air and that only increases in the wildness of these winds". 

Next, it's over to a farm to discuss sheep farming and the potential disappointments it may hold. However, it's not all doom and gloom with new born lambs prancing in the snow!

 

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.
