Description

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

This episode is set in Duncap Head, Co.Donegal, where fishermen make their living braving the rough seas and seals appear to say hello. Locals chat to McGilloway about the types of fish you can find in these waters and they all set off together early on an August morning. It isn't any ordinary fish though that is getting hunted today, it's the blue shark who are "big, cruel, greedy and great fighters"!

As the day goes on, learn the tricks employed to capture this ferocious creature, from stationing some of the bait further away from the boat - to using the sharks sense of smell against it!

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.
