A new series of engaging, quirky and very real videos, showcasing what makes county Monaghan truly unique, is about to go live – and through the stories, secrets and observations of our own local people, our county is finding its voice in the most compelling of ways.
Titled ‘#My Monaghan’, the initiative is being launched with a number of short video pieces focusing on what we in Monaghan have to offer the curious tourist.
The project builds on a previous My Monaghan campaign and the main aim is to put a face and a voice to Monaghan. Each video features local people, talking about their passions and telling their stories.
The first video will be launched on Thursday 5th July and a new video will be released every week after that for the months of July and August. In the first video, Stephen Murphy from Old Carrick Mill, an artisan distillery in Carrickmacross, traces the history of the old flour mill back almost 300 years and discovers a link with a famous vineyard in Bordeaux.
