Port of Cork to Feature in Fly on the Wall Style Documentary for TV3

‘Cork Mega Port’

Have you ever wondered about the functions of the Port of Cork, the kind of people who work there, what they do and how many ships visit Cork every day and the types of cargo on board? Well you are about to find out. TV3 have commissioned a fly on the wall style series on the Port of Cork, produced by Goldhawk Media, which will air on 28th April 2014 at 9pm and will see four one hour weekly episodes exploring all areas of the Port of Cork.

Goldhawk Media who have produced the TV series, have spent the last four months living and breathing the Port of Cork. They have followed all port employees including management, crane drivers, tug operators, pilots, launch crew and maintenance and engineering staff. Regardless of weather, they have been out on the sometimes high seas, filming panamax size vessels laden with cargo arriving into the Port. This 365 days a year 24/7 port never stops, and Goldhawk Media have been there every step of the way.

The series promises to give an exciting insight not just into the everyday operations of the Port and the people behind it, but also highlights the Port’s importance to the region and necessity as a gateway for trade both in and out of Munster. As well as having a serious side, the series will show the lighter side of the Port by following some exciting employees who have worked in the Port for many years. These character’s experience and wit combined, ensure the viewer will be entertained and amazed at the sometimes dangerous roles that must be undertaken.

The Port of Cork prides itself on having a reliable, long serving, experienced group of employees and one thing that is evident within the series, is the passion that exists in working at the Port of Cork. Some staff describe working at the Port of Cork as having the ‘best job in the world’ and from the varied services and operations which the Port of Cork is involved in, it’s easy to see why.

Speaking about the new TV3 series ‘Cork Mega Port’, Chief Executive Brendan Keating said: “When we were approached by Goldhawk Media on behalf of TV3 back in 2013 and heard their experience and saw their enthusiasm, we jumped at the opportunity to get involved in this production. While the series shows everything the Port is involved with from operations, to maintenance, the cruise business, community initiatives and our recent port redevelopment plans, it has been the level of enthusiasm from staff which has really shone through and we are very proud to share this with the people of Ireland.”

‘Cork Mega Port’ will air on TV3 commencing on Monday 28th April 2014 and will include four one hour episode every Monday evening at 9pm. Don’t miss it!
