New documentary on Lough Derg to be broadcast on Ireland’s first international channel Irish TV.

15 Jul 2014

Lough Derg’s extraordinary spiritual attraction as one of Ireland’s oldest places of pilgrimage is revealed in an insightful new documentary to be broadcast on Ireland’s first international channel Irish TV.

Ireland’s Pilgrim People will air at 9pm on Thursday, July 17 and can be seen across Ireland, the UK, and Europe on Sky Channel 191, Freesat 400, Eircom’s eVision.free-to-air boxes and online at Irishtv.ie and in the United States on the PBS network.

Presenter Malachi Cush joins pilgrims as they land at the Sanctuary of St Patrick on Donegal’s Lough Derg and the hour-long programme records their experiences of three days of prayer, penance and fasting. 

Malachi said, “We show viewers what brings pilgrims to Lough Derg and explore the deep sense of peace, calm and fulfilment that is to be enjoyed on this Island which St Patrick himself was called to.”
