Hornøya's Seabird Colony

From June 10th to July 12th, you can follow a live show from a bird cliff on an island called Hornøya, in the distant north-east of Norway.  About 100,000 sea birds are nesting in the steep mountainside at Hornøya, near Vardø in Finnmark.

HITCHING FOR HOPE

HITCHING FOR HOPE

Ruairi Mc Kiernan is a young man who as he says is ‘hitching for hope’, he is armed with his tent, some clothes, his laptop and mobile phone. He is spending the month of July on the road, hitching about. The idea for the trip came after he was asked to speak at the MacGill Summer School on the theme of citizens’ views of the republic, he didn’t feel qualified to talk without first connecting deeper into people's dreams for Ireland.
