Top Irish Movie #1


The Commitments

A headstrong, fast-talking, ambitious young Dubliner fancies himself a promoter of talent and sets about assembling and packaging a local Irish R&B band. His group of self-absorbed, backbiting, but stunningly talented individuals begin to succeed beyond his wildest dreams, until petty jealousies and recrimination threaten to scuttle the whole deal. That part of the review is from Amazon. For our part, we love this movie! The music is terrific, the cast of unknown actors is great, and, overall, it's pure entertainment from beginning to end.

Featuring the legendary Frank Patterson and other glorious voices, this video features many of the hymns I remember my dad singing when I was a little girl.

Noted actress Anjelica Huston, who was raised in Ireland, and author Frank McCourt, host this celebration of Irish music, dance, and culture. Amazon Review

Yankee Doodle Dandy

From his early days as a child-star in his family's vaudeville show up to the time of his comeback at which he received a medal from the president for his special contributions to the US, this is the life- story of George M. Cohan, who produced, directed, wrote and starred in his own musical shows for which he composed his famous songs.

Ireland's oldest city
Waterford

Situated in south eastern Ireland on the river Suir - pronounced Shure - Waterford was founded by the Vikings in 914. It was taken over by the Anglo-Norman invaders of the 12th century and was one of the most important Old English centres in medieval Ireland. Today, Waterford is world famous for its intricately cut crystal which was made in the city from 1783 until early 2009. Waterford is also known for being the home of Ryanair which began operations in the city with a 14-seat turboprop aircraft flying between Waterford and Gatwick Airport. Other claims to fame include being the first place where the the tri-colour flag of the Irish Republic was flown; it's also where the the modern bacon curing process was invented and it's where Ships Biscuits were first manufactured by Jacobs - they're better known nowadays as cream crackers!
