Trivia

The quote from Lord Kilmichael, "there are those who look forward to the day when a Celtic Irishman is as rare in Ireland as a Red Indian in Manhattan", is from a purported editorial in the Times of London written during the famine. James Joyce adapted this in his 1922 novel Ulysses, "... and the Times rubbed its hands and told the whitelivered Saxons there would soon be as few Irish in Ireland as redskins in America."

Quotes

Lord Kilmichael: The peasants are all the same. No appreciation of beauty.

An Irish Masterpiece
5 September 2018 | by mick-stainesSee all my reviews

Feeney (the persuasive, unexpectedly Australian James Frecheville) plays an Irish Ranger who returns from wars in Afghanistan to find his family caught in the cogs of the developing holocaust. Heaving around a head like an Easter Island statue decorated with weeds, Feeney soon encounters even worse outrages and, setting aside ideas of emigration, vows to pursue a war against the administrators and colonialist bandits. This is a must see...
