A new online film starring TV and radio presenter Angela Scanlon and her dad Phelim exploring Mayo and Sligo has been unveiled. It’s the third in a series of four short films created by Tourism Ireland and The Daily Telegraph to highlight Ireland to holidaymakers in Great Britain.
The online videos – called “On the road with Angela Scanlon” – are all about driving holidays around the island of Ireland. They’re hosted on the Telegraph website and are being promoted via online advertising as well as on the social platforms of both The Daily Telegraph and Tourism Ireland, including Facebook and Twitter, and will be seen by around 123,000 viewers.
In the film, viewers see Angela and Phelim begin their trip in Westport, with coffee and a slice of apple tart in Christy’s Harvest. The father-and-daughter duo debate where to go next on their adventure, with a little advice from Christy. They drive to Keem Bay, which Angela describes as “just unbelievable”. They continue round the coast for a spot of kayaking at Downpatrick Head. The pair carry on past Ben Bulben and stop at Eithna’s by the Sea in Mullaghmore, where they feast on a “meal that requires an apron” – a platter of freshly caught seafood, piled high with lobsters, prawns and crab, all locally sourced.
