Aodhán Ó Baoill sets off to walk different pilgrim routes around Ulster. Over the three weeks, Aodhán meets locals and fellow pilgrims along the roads and finds out more about the history of these ancient – and in some cases modern – ways.
The three pilgrim routes will take listeners from Gweedore in Donegal to St Patrick’s Way in Downpatrick. Aodhán discovers the spirituality of each route and tries to reconnect with the people who walked the way before him as he aims to take a break from the rush of modern life.
On the production of the series and walking the routes, Aodhán said: “It was fantastic to have the opportunity to take time out of the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It has been a thought-provoking and thoroughly enjoyable experience to make this series, and to get the chance to explore these routes that I have had an interest in for so long.”
