“This a short documentary I shot with a friend of mine for a local irish language network about our experiences growing up skating when we where younger.
All the speaking is done in the irish language but it has subtitles and features a lot of archive footage from the irish skate scene as well as some more up to date footage as well”. - Dónal Glackin.

I never would have thought putting on my first pair of skates when I was 12 that I’d still have a set on when I was 31. This sport has completely changed my life ; given me a set of close friends that I can count on for life, brought me on countless trips around the world that have so many fun memories and shaped a large part of who I am today.
Someday when my kids make the mistake to call me uncool I look forward to pushing play on these videos and saying ‘oh yeah, can you do this?’ Enjoy! – Patrick O’Sullivan (FB).
PS: big thanks to Morgan for convincing me to dust off my skates and give it one more go as well as filming and editing this for me, and Gary and Brian for chipping in with some filming as well, much love my brothers!
