A Dundalk native has created a stunning hyperlapse video of his hometown in a bid to shine a new light on the place.

Mark Duffy captured a whopping 37,000 photos over a total of 33 hours filming.

It took approximately 13 hours for him to complete the video.

"I wanted to do some sort of video project around Dundalk during last year as I was sick and tired of hearing bad news about Dundalk," he told

"I play drums so I meet people across the country and Dundalk seems to have a bad reputation."

Mark used his new GoPro Hero 4 to capture the impressive images of the Louth town.

"I knew GoPros could do timelapses but making the images move at such a slow pace is what really interested me.

"The Dundalk-Shamrock Rovers game at Oriel Park in July 2015 was the first clip I did.

"I made up a list of places I liked as a kid and in some places sat with my camera for 3hours.

"The image resolution is so big for video editing it slowed my whole computer down, which had a huge impact on deciding what speed to set each clip as I didn't want the video any longer than 5 minutes.

"Any longer than that and all you get are 'Skip ahead Sallys' and I really wanted everyone not to miss a bit!"
