This episode of McGilloway's Way follows on from Part 1, this time journeying to the rolling hills and waterways of County Derry/ Londonderry and the Faughan Valley. Follow Oliver McGilloway as he discovers the outstanding flora and fauna of the area as he speaks with the locals who have plenty of colourful stories to tell about the way of life, farming and fishing.  

Oliver takes his time to appreciate the natural surroundings with a stroll through the forests of Faughan Valley, he even stops to admire peculiar fungus formations and experience the art of fly fishing. 

McGillioway's Way stands as a precursor to Lesser Spotted Ulster with Joe Mahon. 


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 broadcasted today.
