Tourism Ireland has created a new online video to highlight the Wild Atlantic Way.
"Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way – Connecting The World For Over 100 Years"
Titled "Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way – Connecting the world for over 100 years", the video shows that throughout history, locations along the Wild Atlantic Way have played a part in connecting the world. For example, in 1919, Sir John Alcock and Sir Arthur Whitten-Brown flew from Newfoundland in Canada in a two-man Vickers Vimy biplane and performed a crash landing at Derrigimlagh Bog in Connemara, and, in the same year, Guglielmo Marconi sent the first transatlantic radio telegraph from Ballybunion to Nova Scotia.
The video can be viewed below.
