With St. Patrick's Day next
week, I thought I'd share some of my video from my favorite overseas
destination, my "old country," Ireland. And since everyone
has heard of Killarney, I chose that destination as the subject for
most of this 10-minute, 25-second clip from my 1999 video journal of
my Ireland trip with my late brother Tom. Next week I hope to share
views from St. Patrick's own sites in the Emerald Isle. Killarney is
a town a little smaller than Indiana, Pa., in southwestern Ireland,
but it is also the location of the Killarney National Park, portions
of which are featured here. After Killarney, we'll travel by train to
the East Coast to meet a ferry to take us across the Irish Sea to South
Wales. The narration this time is from the original videotape, with
authentic background noises ranging from lapping water on the lakeshore
to the clacking of the train on the tracks, accompanied by the Irish
Lullaby, "Over in Killarney..."
and share alike! Put your video clips on your home town home
page, the Nanty Glo Home Page.* Just send them in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
