The second of our special events to celebrate our Irish Culture will be a screening of ‘Mise Éire’. This film is a historic artistic collaboration of George Morrison’s pioneering cinematic work, Seán Ó Riada’s innovative music score, and Gael Linn’s film-making experience. The film uses newsreel and contemporary photographs to tell the story of events surrounding the Easter Rising of 1916. Ó Riada’s inspired musical score brought the images to life and instilled them with emotion. The title track, Mise Éire, instills a tremendous feeling of national pride and is one of the world’s most recognised pieces of Irish music. Those who attend ‘Is Fada Anocht” le Aisteoirí Chúil Aodha on May 19th will be entitled to a €3 discount at the door if they present their ticket from that performance. Fáilte roimh cách!
