The use of video in geographic research is becoming increasingly common, particularly in the study of bodies, practices and mobilities. It is being employed as one of a number of research methods to access and engage with movements as they are occurring in place. This article reviews the literature surrounding methodological developments and discussions of the role of video. A short video clip of people climbing Croagh Patrick, Co. Mayo Ireland, on a main pilgrimage day, is explored and interpreted as an example of a way in which video can be used in this type of research. The movements and moments in the recording will be analysed and related to themes with in the geographies of mobilities.
