Aerial Ireland is a fascinating and revealing story of Ireland: its geology, natural terrain, human history and constructed environment as seen from above. Using aerial footage filmed from helicopters and quadrotor drones, the documentary presents viewers with a spectacular overview of the multifaceted complexity of western Europe’s most historically significant and beautiful island. Aerial Ireland offers a vision of the Emerald Isle as never seen before. From the primeval landscapes forged by the retreating glaciers of the Ice Age, to the Neolithic tombs and prehistoric forts of the Celtic era, the glorious architecture of the early Celtic church, the medieval towns and castles of the Viking and Anglo-Norman eras, and the bustle and hum of modern cities in the information age. This is a story and a landscape you thought you knew seen from an entirely new and uniquely revealing perspective.
