Bliain ar Oileán Acla

Filmed over the course of 12 months, this series follows life on the Mayo island, from the perspective of a number of individuals – young and old, those whose families have lived there for generations and those who have moved there more recently. We meet some of the characters whose stories feature over the course of the series, including: Sean O’Malley, Orla Calvey and local tour-guide and surf coach Tomás McLoughlin.
