Offaly is very often the forgotten county in Ireland as tourists flock to the likes of the Wild Atlantic Way. 

Offaly is painted as a dreary bogland and little else, but Banagher man Shane Barton has put the misconceptions to bed with this stunning drone footage.

Shane sent his powerful drone up over the River Shannon to take in the surrounds of Banagher and Shannonbridge, capturing the area in evening sunlight after two weeks of warm weather. 

From the expansive unspoiled landscape to the charm of the lampposts on Banagher Bridge, the video proves just how beautiful the west of the county really is.
