#CaminoVoyage - Saturday night (10 March) saw the Irish premiere of The Camino Voyage as part of the Audi Dublin International Film Festival 2018.

The documentary follows a motley crew including a writer, an artist a stonemason and two musicians — including Oscar-winner Glen Hansard — as they embarked on a 2,500km odyssey by currach from Ireland to northern Spain, following the trail of the Camino de Santiago.

The 2016 adventure in the Naomhóig na Tinte was previously broadcast on TG4 and covered on Afloat.ie by our own Winkie Nixon, but this past weekend marked the first time the international feature-length version had been shown on the big screen in Ireland.

Crew members Brendan Moriarty, Brendan Begley and Liam Holden were in attendance with director Dónal Ó Ceilleachair at the Irish Film Institute on Saturday for the screening, which also served as a tribute to fellow crew Danny Sheehy (Domhnall Mac Síthigh), who died in 2017 while sailing the Naomhóg south to Portugal.

The Camino Voyage will have its next Irish screening as the opening film of the Dingle International Film Festival next week on Thursday 22 March, and can be seen in Westport on 13 April as part of the Celtic Camino Festival.
