A breathtaking new video captures the beauty of Ireland with stunning visuals accompanied by the voices of Irish people describing what it means to be Irish.

It's not a clever advertisement from Failte Ireland, but rather comes courtesy of Irish production company Sondar Visuals.

There are shots coming from above and below some of Ireland's natural treasures, tourist spots, cities and countryside and it's captivating.

It's not all sunny beaches and green fields, however, as the Irish rain is represented too, as are the The Ploughing Championships, Barry's Tea, the Troubles in Northern Ireland, and Dublin city with nods to figures of Irish literature, history and sport.
