'Sligo's the Parting Glass'

Here's a short film we cameo in & Rackhouse fiddler Fiachra plays on the soundtrack...
The film was made by a collaboration of Sligo creative friends to highlight the thriving music scene & beauty of Sligo ahead of the All Ireland Fleadh to be held in Sligo in August 2014. 
A local publican & friend of ours Colin Gillen was the mastermind behind the film & a number of Sligo's pubs, film makers, musicians & patrons got on board to make it possible...
It's a twist on the very successful Tullamore Dew Ad 'The Parting Glass'.
