'Sé Inis Oírr an t-oileán is lú de na trí oileán Áirainn agus cúntas sa gclár ar na buntáisí agus ar na míbhuntáistí a bhaineann le bheith id Oileánach san lá atá innú ann.

The arrival of the Córas Iompair Éireann (CIÉ) ferry Naomh Éanna is an occasion for the islanders of Inis Oírr (Inisheer), the smallest of the three Aran Islands off the County Galway coast.

Currachs are used to transfer cargo from the ferry to the island. Cattle wait their turn to be towed out to the ferry one at a time by currach before they are winched onto the ferry. However on this occasion there is a problem with the winch and the cattle must remain on Inis Oírr.

Every cloud has a silver lining as the islanders can retire early to the pub and forget about the troubles of the day. There is a television in the corner of the pub but it is switched off as patrons, young and old, are more interested in partaking in traditional singing and dancing.
