Hector and Cian go large… Ibiza 2001, Irish style [September 2001]
Fair play to Galway-based DJ Cian Ó Cíobháin for digging this one out and posting it on Facebook the other night…
Back in September 2001, Clubbing.com magazine sent more than 100 Irish DJs and clubbers to Ibiza, with Irish-language station TG4 there to capture the madness, as well as find time for a ‘cúpla focal as Gaeilge’ (a few words in Irish).
Cian, a native Irish speaker, joined broadcaster Hector Ó hEochagáin for this fly on the wall documentary, catching up with eccentric locals, try to get in to Space, watch the sun go down and come up again, and compare San Antonio’s West End to Wren’s Day in Dingle (look it up).
Personally, this video holds a special place in my heart as it was filmed the same month (albeit a different week) that I made my first visit to the White Isle. Now, with nine visits under my belt, I’m still holding it together well… I think.
