A Summer on Rathlin

Cameras capture life on Rathlin Island, with its community of just 100 residents, as it celebrates its first ever maritime festival featuring currachs and ceilidhs.

This true portrayal of life on Rathlin Island reveals a community of just over 100 residents, where young people are valued as the key to survival for future generations.

A busy summer on the island sees the first ever Maritime festival, with currachs, ceilidhs and many visitors. The tourist industry is also getting a boost with the building of a new hostel. The island play is in rehearsal and the primary school, with only nine pupils, has a new headmistress this year. There's no secondary school on the island, so as summer draws to a close, the older children prepare to go to boarding school in Belfast.
