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.

Great podcast! Please post more often

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!
