A podcast about Ireland in Films hosted by Alex, Clíona and Seán.
Each episode we discuss a film that features Ireland (or Irish characters) as a main element of the story.
Many Irish people may know that perturbed feeling when a moon-faced eejit called Séamus blows something up in a Harry Potter film. Or feel a sting of resentment when Michael Fassbender, Brendan Gleeson or Saoirse Ronan are nominated for "Best British Performance." Or even just experience a jab of begrudgery when Kevin Spacey saunters into Dublin to make a kooky caper film that turns Martin Cahill into Danny Ocean. This podcast is about such feelings.

Michael’s Seal of Approval
Great choice of films. There’s varying degrees of “Irishness”, but a similar amount of discussion given to the portrayal of Irish culture. And I do like how there is a proper critical appraisal of the films themselves, not just all the Irish culture stuff! Love the Taffin intro for the accent feature. Great stuff!
