Ciarán Walsh was commissioned by the Institute of Technology Tralee, Ireland (ITT) to document the Arctic Expedition by final year students of  the college. It is being produced by FÁS TV and Video Production, Monavalley, Tralee.

The expedition was based in Totovara, near Yllas and involved an arduous programme of cross country skiing and camping by degree candidates of the Health and Leisure Dept. (ITT). The expedition lasted 8 days and was led by Tomás Aylward (ITT), Donal O Dowd (Cappanalea Outdoor Education Centre) and Dr Michael Hall (ITT).

The film crew – Ciarán Walsh and international mountain guide Kieran Creevy – arrived in Finland on 24 February and departed on 6 March. Conditions were good, temperatures, rising from minus 14 c to minus 2 c on the last day;  heavy overcast conditions yielding to bright sunshine. Almost 4 hours of footage was shot and this is currently being edited in FÁS TV and Video Production by Editor Shane Kiely. Production is managed by Paul Dolan and post by Brian Nolan. The documentary is due for release in April 2011.

Filming was done on  a JVC GYHM 700E (XDCAM), a Go Pro and B roll on a Panasonic SDR SW20.

Bishop Moriarty moved the date of the pilgrimmage forward by a month to emphasise the Christian aspect of the new festival but the message was lost on the 20,000 people who are reported to have gathered there. These had developed from aenachs, gatherings of freemen permitted by Irish law for the purpose of commerce and games, long before the development of towns in Ireland.

Directed by artist Sean Lynch, the centre will consist of a collection of archival material, a reading area, a revolving photographic display and an audio-visual presentation that all explore McAuliffe’s legacy in North Kerry and West Limerick. As a young man, Pat McAuliffe had in him a restless, imaginative streak that left him dissatisfied with the chores of plastering in an average Irish country town.

It will be screened on a gable wall next to “The Spout” on Saturday evening followed by a second screening and a ceilí in the community centre in Milltown. It’s informed by all the conversations that Pauline has had with people in the town’” says Walsh who spent 3 days filming the artwork for O’Connell. The filming involved Thomas O’Sullivan of Milltown and the shoot was documented by photographer Siobhan Dempsey of Ballyferriter.
