YouTube videos of Irish archaeological interest

There are hundreds of videos on YouTube relevant to Irish archaeology, especially if you include scenes of castles. Many of these are holiday videos, with comments like 'I have no clue where we are, but it's a bunch of rocks'. This list will, I hope, give a representative selection, but will tend to concentrate on the more interesting ones.
