The Wind That Shakes The Barley

(A 25MB QuickTime trailer is available at Allocine)

The Wind That Shakes The Barley, Ken Loach's Palme d'Or-winning Irish War of Independence/Civil War flick which we've mentioned before (and is on release next week) is the subject of a Hidden History documentary tonight (Tuesday) at 10pm on RTÉ 1.

One notable omission in the interviewees, though - just where are revisionist Canadian academic Peter Hart's many critics among those mentioned at the RTÉ site?

"Libel"-Richard Waghorne

About me

  • An early-thirties male Irish technologist living and working in Dublin, I'm a former (recovering) member of both Fianna Fáil and the Roman Catholic Church.

    I'm not a member of any political party these days, but my opinions can be broadly categorised as 'lefty' and republican. I am also a former member of the Irish Defence Forces.

    Please feel free to check out the FI Fie Foe Fum group blog, where I was once a regular contributor, and the Cedar Lounge Revolution, where I can usually be found in the comments.
