Young Explorer with Neil Hyland

Vincent Hyland
Wild Derrynane

The project covers both built heritage and natural heritage.

This is the video log of 12 years old Neil Hyland, as he explores his local area of Caherdaniel, Co. Kerry, Ireland.

Delivered online, through website and social media channels the Young Explorer project visits and uncovers the local history of 1300 year old Stone Forts at Caherdaniel, World War 2 Look Out Posts at Lambs Head and the Underwater Marine Life of Wild Derrynane.

The project idea originated as a result of a school assignment during the lockdown phase of the pandemic.

As a family the Hyland's had a conversation about making a short film series about thier local built and natural heritage with the 12 year old as presenter and narrator. They did everything from the music, to audio, filming, editing, post production, website design and digital dissemination of the project.

To date the project has received over 10,000 views on line and includes local, national and international audiences. Neil and his family will be featured on RTE Nationwide in the coming months.
