Ireland's beautiful Lough Swilly in County Donegal, along the Wild Atlantic Way, was the setting for a dramatic story which changed the life of John Newton, a foul-mouthed slave trader who went on to pen one of the most famous and well loved songs of all time - "Amazing Grace". Newton later mentored William Wilberforce in his long battle to abolish the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.
The beautiful Irish town of Buncrana, just 45 minutes' drive from Malin Head (Ireland's most northerly point), less than 30 minutes from the city of Derry and 60 minutes from the Giant's Causeway is home to the lovely Amazing Grace Park and the inspirational Amazing Grace Viewing Point.
2017 was saw hundreds of visitors make the trip to Buncrana to experience the festival, the park and viewing point and to sing "Amazing Grace" in Amazing Grace Country! Enjoy this video from the Bethlehem Baptist Church choir all the way from Minnesota in the USA.
