A Nicky McBride Film
by CaptainVertigo  2 Apr 2015
It's time to welcome Nicky McBride ("The Antrim Rambler") to the world of Irish mountain video makers. Croaghan is not the most spectacular of creatures but that is immaterial: Nicky gives the potential walker an excellent idea of what to expect. And it's all done with crystal clear video images. This appears to be a job done by two walkers: one filming and one moving. Plenty of colour. I look forward to more material.
