"Pick of the Day! The Raidió na Gaeltachta presenter Rónán Mac Aodha Bhuí does what you would call "a Martin Sheen" in this new documentary series, trekking across the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain... this programme is a homage to the religious pilgrimage that winds up in Santiago de Compostela, with Mac Aodha Bhuí an advocate for the life affirming qualities of its every dusty ethereal turn..."
