The Camino Voyage

The Camino Voyage UC

For hundreds of years people sailed from Ireland to A Coruña in Northern Spain and walked the camino to Santiago de Compostela from there. In 2014 this inspiring crew began their own version of this historical voyage in their own handmade traditional boat, called a ‘Naomhóg'.Pulling into coastal towns and villages en route, camping and cooking as they went - this eclectic crew forged many new friendships; surprising those they met with a boat that seems to come straight out of the middle ages.This tiny boat against the backdrop of the vast ocean struck a chord in peoples' imaginations all the way along the voyage. 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.This intimate documentary charts the trials and tribulations of a voyage that in the words of Danny Sheehy, took sweat, blood and blisters to complete while deepening and renewing friendships, creativity and spirituality in the process.
