The Fourth episode  of 'Along Home Shores' on UTV Ireland sees avid sailor Bobby captain his own boat in Carrick-on-Shannon this evening, Thursday, November 17 at 7.30pm.

Bobby captains his own boat from Carrick-on-Shannon in Leitrim to Roscommon’s Lough Key and finds out about interesting businesses and initiatives along the way. At Lough Key, Bobby cycles its scenic forest park. The businessman meets Mayo’s very own surfing Elvis when he travels to Louisburg beach and he also goes fishing on the beautiful Lough Mask. At Enniscrone in Sligo, Bobby meets David McGowan, the man responsible for bringing a Boeing 767 to his quirky glamping village in the seaside town.

Along Home Shores is an eight part series for UTV Ireland, which sees avid sailor Bobby discovering the hidden treasures of the coastlines and waterways of Ireland. In each episode, he examines how people are using the natural resources of our waterways to create employment, while also showcasing the beauty of Ireland along the way.

Bobby Kerr said: “I have been truly amazed by the scenic beauty of Ireland’s coastline and inland waterways during my filming of Along Home Shores. The fascinating characters I met along the way were an absolute inspiration to me. Through the prisms of heritage, business and culture, I have now gained a unique insight into Ireland. The sheer magnificence of our coastal and inland waterways, and their people, cannot be overstated.”
