My Commentaries

10 July 2003: John Wayne wasn’t the only movie cowboy to come to the west of Ireland, and he wasn’t the only famous face either [Come fleadh with me]
17 July 2003: What is a ghost from the loo at Hogwarts doing riding a bus in Dublin? Must be the magic of the film fleadh [All in the fleadh family]
24 July 2003: According to its movies, Ireland is a great place for lovers, but not necessarily for journalists, idealistic young seminarians, or tourists far from the city [Ireland through its own lens]
