Images of Ireland's coastline and countryside will be beamed into homes across Britain during a new TV series called Ireland: Coast & Country, which began airing on More4 on the evening of Wednesday 22 June.
The three-part series will follow various personalities from across the island of Ireland - offering viewers the chance to learn about their daily activities and lifestyles and to see our spectacular landscape. The series was produced by Afro-Mic Productions, a Belfast-based production company, and is supported by Tourism Ireland.
Characters set to feature in the series include a wild ocean photographer in Co. Clare, Ireland's first and only vermouth makers on Valentia Island, a lighthouse keeper on Rathlin Island, and a goat herder in Howth, as well as three mountain climbers - all over 70 years old - exploring the Wicklow Mountains.
