“A true portrait of Irish life spanning 60 years”
– Historian Marcus Woodman
The Irish Film Institute returns to the Fleadh with a wonderful new programme of archival films made in and about Galway. These precious snapshots of Irish life range from the silent movie era in the 1920’s, right through to the 1970’s. The programme includes compelling and rarely-seen amateur and professional material covering a broad range of people, places and activities. Look closely, you may very well see yourself or someone you know on screen. Silent films in the programme will be accompanied by Aran Island fiddler Deirdre Ní Chonghaile.
