Eurovision 1996 winner Eimear Quinn is still going strong with her latest release “Hibernia” and the accompanying music video.
Stunning nature scenery
The music video for “Hibernia” features stunning nature scenery. These scenes include majestic cliffs, emerald valleys, mighty waves, and wild horses. Undoubtedly, it is very much the ethereal imagery you’d come to expect from Eimear Quinn!
“Hibernia” is a single off Eimear’s latest album Ériu, and it was recorded with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.
Taking Ireland’s oldest poem as inspiration; The Song of Amergin, this is an ‘ode to Ireland’ invoking the ancient images of the poem, but also the historical latin names for Ireland. The lyrics, in 3 languages, weave a path from ancient to current times. The song speaks to the intrinsic human spirit present in us all; a core strength exclusively owned by the individual that can can never be taken or broken.Description of “Hibernia”
