The wild and rugged beauty of Tory Island, off the coast of County Donegal.
Scenes from Tory Island, nine miles off the coast of County Donegal, are accompanied by Tory Islander Éamonn Mac Ruairí singing the famous fishing song from the island 'Amhrán na Scadán'('Song of Herring').
In the Foreigner's Graveyard on Tory, a stone marks the death of Luigi Giovanelli who died on the Arondora Star which was sunk by a German U-boat on 2 July 1940. Another stone marks the event on 22 September 1884 when the HMS Wasp set sail for Tory, but sank when the ship hit rocks.
Also featured in the film are the Tory Island Lighthouse, St Colmcille's Church and whitewashed houses.
A group of fishermen drag a boat 'Little Flower' from the water up slipway using two tractors. Another fisherman cleaning his boat shares a joke with two children.
The bilingual current affairs series ‘Féach’ reported on national and international events and was broadcast from 1967 to 1984. Féach was aired every Sunday evening and featured reports in both Irish and English. The Irish word ‘Féach’ meaning ‘Look’ gives an indication of what the programme was about as editor John Ross stated ‘It will try to show, from a fresh viewpoint, what is happening at home and abroad each week’. (RTÉ Guide, 14 July 1967, p 17) The show was originally anchored by Andy O’Mahony with reporting assistance from Seán Duignan and Mícheál Ó Briain.
This episode of ‘Féach’ was broadcast on 29 April 1974.
