Sarah , Thanks for that note . Im very interested in this aspect of the story presently . From Gilmores perspective and from other Irish of the day they saw great parallels between the plight of the Slave and the Irishman . In fact the position of the Irish during penal times had legally been comparable with that of the planters slave in the south . So please any info would be tremendous . My email address is email@example.com . By the way happy 2014 and I hope you have had a great Xmas . Regards Jarlath MacNamara
Hi Sarah....Same here. I have shared this film with my nieces and nephews over the years. As well as another family favorite, "The War of the Buttons". I love the folk lore of the "Secret of Roan Inish"...it's just magical! The landscape, the music, it's just charming!!!
