Bóinn – The River Goddess – An Animated Video

  • Screening

‘Bóinn – The River Goddess’ was composed in 2020 as part of the Songs for Our Children Project. The focus of this project was to create a body of songs that are child-friendly and will pass on the unaccompanied and ornamented singing styles of the Irish song tradition.

This song, composed by Meath singer Róisín Ní Ghallóglaigh, is about the River Boyne and tells of its history, mythology, geography and environmental importance, using the medium of unaccompanied traditional song.

The animated video combines the visual aspects of the song with natural soundscapes and found-sounds in nature and follows the Goddess as she makes her way across the county from her source in Kildare to where she reaches the sea.

This video will be available on the Meath Cruinniú na nÓg YouTube channel. For more information click here.
