An epic 2,500 km modern day celtic odyssey, The Camino Voyage/Iomramh an Chamino is directed by Dónal Ó Céilleachair. Five men demonstrate the courage, endurance and friendship required to complete the historic voyage. This documentary features Breanndán ó Beagaloich, Glen Hansard, Liam Holden, Brendan-Pháid ó Muircheartaigh and poet Domhnall Mac Síthigh. Dedicated to the memory of Domhnall Mac Síthigh (1951-2017).
For hundreds of years people sailed from Ireland to A Coruña in Northern Spain and walked the camino to Santiago de Compostela from there. This inspiring crew have done their own version of this historical voyage in a Naomhóg (a traditional West Kerry curragh). Every community that they have connected with en route opened their doors – and their hearts – to this crew, and the men have in exchange, inspired them with their courage, endurance, storytelling, music, poetry and song in a coming together of people in the most fundamental and ancient of ways.
“It took sweat, blood and blisters to complete while deepening and renewing friendships, creativity and spirituality in the process.”- Danny Sheehy
