Flight of the Doves! Filmed in different parts of County Galway including my first home in Dunlo Street, Ballinasloe, where they filmed the Garda Barracks scenes! They used actual Gardai as extras because my Uncle Liam was a young recruit at the time and he is in it!

If you get a chance, the documentary called Out of Ireland is great.

I love anything Irish but the first Irish movie I saw at the cinema was Ryan's Daughter. Loved the story and the scenery in that one.

THANKS for this listing above, so many others I haven't seen that I will look out for now. :)

Black '47 - Set in Ireland during the Great Famine, the film follows an Irish Ranger who has been fighting for the British Army abroad, as he abandons his post to reunite with his family. The title is taken from the most devastating year of the famine, 1847, which is referred to as "Black '47". The film is much like an old-style American Western, but the Irish version...
