LOA

Blind Harry's Wallace is in verse form and Hamilton's translation is from 1722. If you wish you can order it through Amazon.ca. Its actually cheaper than in a book store.

My personal favs riped right from Celtic lore
LOTR: Fellowship of the rings
LOTR: The Two Towers
LOTR: Return of the King


Lordof the rings is not celtic lore, it comes from anglo saxon lore and mythology.

What is "Waking Ned Devine"? Was Billy Elliot an Irish movie? Of course, even though I sound typical now, Braveheart is the ultimate movie and I still cry. I also concur with liking "The Quiet Man", we watched it in high school.

Waking Ned Devine is a funny movie.

It involves a small towns folks trying to collect a winning lottery ticket left by the winner who died of shock when he won.

Filmed on Isle of Man but takes place in Irteland.

For more serious and less fantasy or romantic fare, I recommend The Wind That Shakes The Barley, In the Name of the Father, My Left Foot and an odd little film called Shergar, about a racehorse that was stolen for ransom by the IRA and no trace of it was ever found. This movie offers a somewhat idealized view of what might have happened to it. Some suspense and terror/violence, but also a beautiful film: horses, young people, and Ian Holm's role is lovely too. Filmed on the gorgeous Isle of Man, where a lot of "Irish" footage is shot.

I saw The Water Horse recently. It is about the monster in Loch Ness. i loved it. Also, the Wicker Man was pretty good. Set in America but deals with Celtic lore.

Just watched Irish Jam, funny comedy. Filmed in Cornwall.

The Field, same director and producer as My Left Foot, filmed in County Galway. Bulls Stone Cottage is on the Clifden Road in Leenane, Connemara, drove right by it.

Far and Away, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, good scenes in the beginning, County Galway, Wicklow, Kerry, Dublin, even Maam Cross, County Galway, junction R336 and N59, ask me how I know!

Oh yeah! Saw it first time when it first came out on home video way back when...it's still one of my favorites, not to mention the great music.

In addition to many already mentioned here....I watched the tale end of Into the West yesterday. I'd seen it before years ago, but would love to watch it in its entirety again. Beautiful scenery and I loved the story.

AMC channel had Quiet Man on again. Isn't that an oxymoron?

You can't beat John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara, and a good irish fight.

Who has see the movie "Seachd: The Inaccessible Pinnacle"? I want to, and I am trying to find it.

Here is a caption:
"The truth is in the story. When a young man, Angus, visits his dying Grandfather in hospital he cannot hold back his boyhood quest for the truth - the truth behind the death of his parents and the truth behind his Grandfather's ancient, incredible, fearful stories. Stories from the whole swathe of Gaelic history of poisoned lovers, bloody revenge, water-horses and Spanish gold. His Grandfather hijacks Angus' life for one last time leading him to one of Scotland's most treacherous mountains, The Inaccessible Pinnacle, and an ancient truth he never expected to find"

Here's a video preview link:
http://www.seachd.com

Check it out, you won't be disappointed - I think.
