What has Sectarian trouble got to do with Falling For a Dancer
I loved this mini series when it came out in 1998 here in Ireland, Liam Cunningham was brilliant as Mossie Sheehan and Elizabeth Dermot-Walsh was very good as Lizzie. This mini series had nothing to do with past troubles in Northern Ireland there are no politics and not much religion mentioned and i am sure that Ireland was not the only country in the world that looked down on women who got pregnant outside marriage so to suggest that we are still some backward country like it may have seemed fifty years ago like a reviewer from Australia who claimed to visit here when i would like to know is stupid. Getting Back to Falling for a Dancer if you like old fashion romance with tragedy mixed in this is definitely worth a look.
