Irish Movie Listing

I've always loved Irish history and culture - on our trips to Ireland we've enjoyed seeing the beautiful lands which served as backdrops to these fine movies. Of course, we had to dodge the many fake tourist traps along the way! "The Field" pub. "The Quiet Man" Inn. Ah well ...

Please feel free to Contact Lisa if you have changes or additions! I'd love to get reviews on movies I haven't been able to track down yet.

Gangs Of New York: 2002. It's not really an Irish film, but all the characters are Irish, so you can consider it. Starring Daniel Dey Lewis, Leonardo Di Caprio, Liam Neeson, the tale focusses on the conflicts in New York City in the late 1800s. Irish were being shipped off to the Civil War daily. The "native Irish" were resentful of the incoming "immigrant Irish" who were fleeing the effects of the famine. The tensions led to riots.

The General: Directed by John Boorman, and starring Brendan Gleeson, is the story about a man murdered by IRA.

The Girl with Green Eyes: 1964. An innocent Irish girl (Rita Tushingham) arrives in Dublin and falls for a cold, older man (Peter Finch). Adapted from the best-selling O'Brien novel.
