Super congrats to Paul Murphy for his series of shorts ‘Next Stop’ that won the ‘Spirit of the Festival Award’ at Sky Road Film & TV Festival. The films were produced in conjunction with Galway Film Centre and Irish Heritage Council.
“A series of 4 short documentaries dealing with different aspects of our railway heritage. Rather than telling our railway history these short films deal with the Heritage left behind by the railways and are very much set in the present. The first film ‘Castlegrove Station’ is the story of a man and his young family who move from Dublin back to his native Galway. ‘Fishing line’ explores one mans love of angling in the shadow of Ballynahinch Castle. ‘One day in Castletown’ is the story of a community group and there efforts to restore an iconic building while ‘Temporary Track’ deals with a little know private railway used to harvest turf.”
