Description

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

This episode is set by the River Faughan, Co. Londonderry, waters which are rich in fish, particularly trout and salmon. All kinds of anglers "from all creeds and classes" come to the river hoping to catch fish. The main problem at the moment however, - "and one which the anglers have difficulty understanding" - is that despite the bountiful river, very little fish are being caught. Hear from the locals about their theories of why this happening, from water oxygen levels to algae!


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.
