Tipperary is being showcased on international television thanks to the filming skills of a man from Tipperary Town.

'Impressions of Ireland' is currently being shown on German-based TV channel DW (Deutsche Welle) which reaches more than 185 million people every week!

The video features Fethard, Ballingarry and Grantstown Castle near Golden.

DW is the German international Broadcaster, who reaches more than 185 million people on a weekly basis, their English language TV channel is available almost everywhere in the world.

The video entitled “Impressions of Ireland” was compiled by DW, from three videos made in February by Tipperary man David Moloney.

David, who lives in the countryside outside Tipp Town, sent the videos to DW, who last year broadcasted two of his videos on Skellig Michael and the Cliffs of Moher. He came across DW when he lived in Oman. "I found their style of news, documentaries and travel programmes informative and straightforward, which I liked," David said.

The video 'Impressions of Ireland' combines a promotional video for Grantstown Castle near Golden, a video showing this year’s opening meet in Fethard and the Saint Stephen’s day Wren Boys in Ballingarry.

The stunning Tipperary scenes can also be viewed on their website “DW Check-in Travel Magazine."
