Glaoch - The President's Call

A wonderful documentary called 'Glaoch' - The President's Call, aired on RTE television last night.

I was blown away by the reminder of just how creative and unique the Irish voice and perspective is.
It also brought home to me how we have become perceived as 'the Island of Saints and Scholars' by all the other nations of the world - A perception and a reality we must keep alive!
I believe if we could apply ourselves to all aspects of the future development of our great little country as well our artists have applied themselves to their crafts we would prosper brilliantly.

Here is a link to 'Glaoch'

Enjoy this gem of a program.
