Episode 171: The Women of Achill Island

On Achill Island, black faced sheep roam the seaside cliffs, foraging on seaweed and salt sprayed grass. The Calvey family (8 sisters, 2 brothers and the parents) tend to this wild flock, eventually selling this unique product as Achill Mountain Lamb. This short Perennial Plate film tells the story of the women of the island and their long standing history of perseverance on the Wild Atlantic Way.

    Daniel and Mirra! Ustedes son simplemente marravillosos, siempre disfruto y me llegan al corazon con sus historias, descubriendo lo bueno que hay en este mundo,enmedio de toda la desperanza. Definitivamente como ustedes lo demuestran en cada episodio, la vida esta en la gente sencilla y en contacto con la naturaleza y por supuesto disfrutando la buena comida. No tengo que decir “Adelante” ustedes siempre estan !Adelante! Abrazos!

    Once you know something, you can’t not know it.
    These women, what they do, how they live and see their life and work-it’s penetrating…and for some reason left it’s mark.
