The delights of the smallest of the Aran Islands as a place to escape to are highlighted by comedian Tommy Tiernan in a beautiful 90 second video which aims to raise funds for the island’s unique arts centre.
Tiernan, who lives in Galway, made the video to highlight the peace, tranquillity, and stunning natural beauty of Inis Oirr.
The star of ‘Derry Girls’ and host of a popular chat show on RTÉ One television is urging people to enter a draw for a fabulous prize of a five night holiday for four people on the island.
As Ireland reopens for “staycations” following months of lockdown, there is bound to be huge interest in the prize of a self-catering holiday, with transport from the mainland and a host of extras included.
“One of the most beautiful places in the whole wide world,” says Tiernan in his video. “A small, magical, Gaeltacht island off the mouth of Galway Bay. To the north of me is Connemara, to the west the wild Atlantic Ocean, to the south the beautiful Burren.
“It is sometimes the small things in the smallest places that have the most magical effect.”
Tommy worked with cameraman Rónán O Conghaile and Fibín to make the stunning video during a recent visit to Inis Oírr.
The fundraising draw is to support the most westerly arts centre in all of Europe, which has been supporting the creation of great art for the past 21 years.
