Ronan's Wexford-made video single is on the right track
WEXFORD singer/songwriter Ronan Furlong's chart-topping video single 'Hoplite Armour' has been shortlisted for the Paris Music Video Underground Festival and is being considered for the 'Best of the Best Awards' in Los Angeles later in the year.
The video was filmed at Kilmore Quay in July, 2016.
Directed and produced by Laura Way and her Bodecii Film company, with camera by Barry Doyle, 'Hoplite Armour' is one of the tracks on Ronan's album 'Minerva's Meddling.'
Ronan said news of the music video's success was a wonderful accolade for Laura Way 'and all the great people who generously helped produce it'.
He said that since its release, the video is getting played all around the world.
So far it has had 22,000 YouTube views and made it to Number One in the iTunes charts.
Based around the trials and tribulations faced by the Hoplites - the citizen soldiers of Ancient Greek states - Ronan said his song was about the challenges and struggles we all face in life, and the inspiration we can draw from the beautiful world around us.
'We all have struggles in life and it (the song) has reasonance in today's world,' said Ronan.
