Climb - Ben Bulben
In this four-part series Julien Clancy tackles four of Ireland's most iconic Irish mountains for the very first time. In this episode, Julien visits one of Ireland's most remarkable looking mountains and a childhood favourite, Ben Bulben in Co. Sligo.
Local artist and volunteer with Sligo Mountain Rescue, Heidi Wickham carefully guides us across open bog, up treacherous slopes before we reach the summit and discover a mysterious cave filled with magic and mystery.
Along the way we'll also hear of the mountain's ancient past from historian, folklorist and author, Joe McGowan, before raising our eyes heavenwards to admire the skies with Hans Wieland from the Irish Cloud Appreciation Society.
Presented and Produced by Julien Clancy.
Sound by Carl Mullan and Mixed Bag Media.
Music by Caoimhin O'Raghallaigh.
