Tynan himself lived in London for a few years, but returned to Dublin to make this video, which admirers are praising as a “masterpiece."
In the video, Tynan tackles the struggles that emigration places on not only those who choose to emigrate, but those who are left behind. He touches upon how Ireland may be easy to leave behind, but it’s also a good place to stay. After all, for many, Ireland is home.
“I’m just saying you might get sick of it all. But you might miss it, too. There’s ten good reasons to go, but a thousand tiny ones not to.”
